This is the trailer of a documentary I co-directed with my friends Ryan Fenson-Hood and Sven O-Hill. Produced by ventura film, Dirk Manthey Film and HillFilm.
Three years after Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans is part ghost town and part third world country. Well known musicians Lillian Boutté, Dr. Michael White and photographer Armand “Sheik” Richardson use jazz as a philosophy and tool to save themselves and their abandoned, crumbling city. The Sound After the Storm tells a story in which this “music born of slavery” is reborn in response to Katrina’s devastation.
