jonathan demme – “new home movies from the lower 9th ward”

New Home Movies from the Lower 9th Ward

showing at the palace theatre, tomorrow (friday) nite at 8:30 p.m. 

A true labor of love, Demme’s new documentary consists of a series of poignant, inspirational “portraits” of New Orleans residents as they struggle to reclaim their homes and neighborhoods in the devastated Lower 9th Ward. “I felt drawn as an American filmmaker, to contribute somehow to the audio-visual record of what these people were going through in their heroic efforts to jump start their lives in the face of this epic, tragic event,” Demme explains.
