CRESCENT CITY CRISIS: Examining New Orleans post-Katrina
The dismay, destruction, and subsequent rebuilding of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina continues to be an area of interest and contention among the media, government, and general public. Join us as we look at films directed by film icon Spike Lee and Fairfield University assistant professor of visual and performing arts Roxana Walker-Canton, who both examine the story of New Orleans at this critical, historic juncture, via stories told by those who lived through it.
All screenings are free and open to the public.
