The Lower 9: A Story of Home

Description: The Lower 9: A Story of Home is a documentary showcasing four determined Lower Ninth Ward residents who share their most intimate stories of home, as they resume their lives years after Hurricane Katrina ravaged their neighborhood. Each story finds a voice in a narrative that intersperses contemporary interviews, abstract cinematography of destruction, and powerful scenes of present, everyday lives.
