Late breaking news: guest filmmakers at "Falling Together in New Orleans" screening

We're pleased to announce that Farrah Hoffmire (director) and Mitchell Davis (producer) , the makers of FALLING TOGETHER IN NEW ORLEANS will make a special surprise appearance at the screening of their film on Thursday, April 26 at 12:30 p.m. We're pleased to welcome them to the LHAAFF. The documentary sensitively tells the inspiring true story of how individual people joined together to attempt to rebuild the lives of New Orleanians affected by Hurricane Katrina. The film is preceded by two shorts, Brigid Maher's AWOL, the story of an African American female soldier who goes AWOL in Iraq, becomes lost in the desert, and is rescued by Iraqi children; and FINDING A JOB IN HOUSTON, an information video produced by the Community Settlement Network of Houston, featuring actual Katrina survivors in a short film intended to aid in resettlement efforts. Admission to the program is $7. Please join us for this thought-provoking selection of independent films addressing contemporary concerns in American life.
