"This powerful, moving documentary of the Katrina disaster is a testament to the courage and integrity of the Human Spirit," says, Kris Kristofferson. Some faced gross governmental incompetence, crime, racism and religious bigotry. Their beliefs, however, whether Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist or of another tradition, provided a reservoir of strength, not only for their survival, but in also aiding others. One man rescued about 100 persons stranded in flood waters, while another was one of only a handful of physicians who elected to stay behind in New Orleans to serve thousands of injured and sick.
Also, people from all religious faiths came together to help one another, such as Muslims helping Buddhists, Buddhists coming to the aid of Jews, Jews assisting Christians. Although the Gulf Coast was ravaged by the worst hurricane to ever strike the United States, the resilient human spirit was devastated but not broken.
Not Broken truly is a testament to the human spirit. Original music, including Kris Kristofferson's Shipwrecked in The 80s, and poetry play a vital role in illustrating and underscoring the inspiring stories in the documentary.
In addition to Kristofferson’s piece, another song, The Passunder (New Orleans), by folksinger and activist John Flynn plays a central role in the music’s score. Also included in the soundtrack are songs and music by the late Jack Neilson. Other musicians include Stephen Lee, Chris Stroffolino and Paul Soniat. Michael Paz of New Orleans is music producer and supervisor. Todd Schmidt and Ned Greene are co-producers, Jackie Flynn, associate producer, Pascal Leister editor, and John Polito, sound mixer.
