Kamp Katrina

In post-Katrina New Orleans, a married couple let the homeless camp in their yard after Mayor Nagin unaccountably closes a park facility. Ashley Sabin and David Redmon's gently observational videography and editing let the story emerge without any controlling structure or narration; the action seems to flow naturally from the characters, which makes it all the more troubling. One man thinks he's in touch with Joan of Arc, the hosts suspect someone is stealing from them, a pregnant woman who smokes crack gives birth to an addicted baby—and it's not clear that any of this was caused by the hurricane. 73 min.
