The Lower 9: A Story of Home

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 over seven years after Hurricane Katrina ravaged their neighborhood. The individual’s stories find voice in a narrative that intersperses contemporary interviews, abstract cinematography of destruction, and powerful scenes of present-day lives.
