Katrina’s Children is part oral history and part lyrical meditation on tragedy and loss. It tells the story that many of us know all too well but this time it is told from the direct experience of the children ages 5 through 13. They come from all walks of life: from the daughter of the queen of Carnival, to underprivileged kids still stuck in Texas. The similarities and differences between these children are at times surprising and reveal patterns and problems that predate Katrina. Aching with sadness, yet grounded in hope, this moving film is ultimately a celebration of children’s extraordinary power of resilience and a tribute to New Orleans unique and indomitable spirit. Katrina’s Children is a multi-faceted portrait of nineteen children, ages 5 through 13, from different neighborhoods of New Orleans. Told entirely from the children’s point of view, the film captures with vivid poignancy the tragic ramifications of the greatest man-made and natural disaster in modern American history.
