Product Description

Through a passionate mixture of private videos, uncensored interviews and school-day adventures, the children of New Orleans notoriously violent Central City neighborhood have created a riveting portrait of childhood at the heart of an ongoing American crisis. No one set out to make a film: six months after Katrina, filmmakers Elizabeth Wood and Gabriel Nussbaum moved to New Orleans with a free art program, intended to help students creatively express their thoughts in response to the chaos of the storm. Their documentary-film class at Singleton Charter School at the local YMCA invited students to take video-cameras home and tell their stories on their own terms. The results quickly transcended the classroom. 300 hours of deeply personal video-tape later, Wade in the Water, Children took shape. Through their own remarkably honest and unusual footage, we enter the students' shuttered housing projects, fractured families, flooded homes and darkened streets. We discover a New Orleans that was a disaster long before Katrina, a place where role models are scarce and gun violence is normal. The children reveal a New Orleans that adults are afraid to discuss, and that a conventional film crew could never penetrate. Wade in the Water, Children offers a poetic and devastating look at life in the Crescent City through the eyes of its youngest citizens.

Review

A DEVASTATING, first-hand account of life in post-Katrina New Orleans, told from the mouths of babes who are surviving it under OUTRAGEOUS living conditions. SCALDING STUFF. --New York Newsday

A Must See Film. --Boston Globe

A story that is funny, bitter, profane and extraordinarily perceptive... the film is a searing and heartbreaking portrait of the failures of New Orleans to help its most disadvantaged citizens both pre and post Katrina. --Educational Media Reviews Online
