      www.LauraAiisha.com/LAH-Musique My CD Release Party was an event to remember: magical and highly blessed, full of talent, love, connection, and the transformative power of music. One friend commented, 'The energy of the crowd took on a life of its own, and Laura’s energy on stage was like nothing I’d ever experienced before.' Another friend expressed, 'Laura and the band created the type of synergy and tightness of the highest caliber that I’ve heard in WNY.' I'm so humbled and honored to receive this feedback and to have had this opportunity to channel my melodies and mantras in real-time for so many supportive, loving, and dynamic people! If you missed this one-of-a-kind party (or even if you were right in front of the stage), this video will transport you to this extraordinary event and give you a taste of what I offer musically.

      • HOLDING BACK THE SURGE - New Orleans


        from Vision Project Added 247 0 0

        A film by Richard Falco A Vision Project Production
 www.visionproject.org This new documentary focuses on the rebuilding of the Hurricane Protection System by the Army Corps of Engineers in New Orleans. Hurricane Katrina’s impact on New Orleans was devastating. It profoundly changed the lives of many of the residents who lived there. After the storm, it became abundantly clear that the hurricane defenses were completely incapable of protecting the city. It was left to the Army Corps of Engineers to design and build a new system. We were given full access to the construction of the system. The focus of the documentary looks at the $14.5 billion dollar construction and the system of protection that is now in place. At the same time, many residents are trying to rebuild their lives. This segment of the film addresses the issue of security and the concept of ‘Home.’ We incorporated a number of residents & community organizers from the areas of the city that where hit the hardest by the storm. These residents are from the 9th Ward and St. Bernard Parish who have chosen to stay and rebuild.

              from Adrian Meredith Added 86 0 0

              New Orleans - A Drowning Fortress The aim of the movie is to observe, on a human scale, the spatial relation between water and the city of New Orleans. Two realities which able the interaction of each other, leading towards a contrasted and diverse society. The content of the following is based on an in situ prospection trip accomplished in early November 2013. Exploration and observation were the main objectives of this 10-day journey in which we grasped the inner characteristics of the city. Interrogations about social activities around the city limits, formed by the levee belt, was the main field of action in which we searched for contact with the local population. Serendipity lead us to individual insights and showed us certain social habits, all of which improved our understanding of daily life in such a fragile community. This research material is part of Gérald Gerber & Adrian Meredith Architecture Master Thesis EPFL-ENAC-SAR 2014, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland.

              • Living Positive


                from Ryan Hildebrant Added 433 3 0

                Living Positive is a short documentary about the challenges and triumphs of HIV positive women in New Orleans, told through the words and stories of five HIV positive women. But far from stopping at individual stories, the film also explores the social forces underlying the disease—including racism, poverty, lack of information about HIV, and the stigma associated with the disease. The film was made as part of the Documentary for Social Justice class at San Francisco State University by four students. Deborah Craig, Ryan Hildebrant and Anthony Massung worked on research and planning the film starting in August 2007. Brett Hickman joined the team and shared his amazing talents as a camera operator and still photographer for the February 2008 shoot on location in New Orleans. Funding for the special 12-unit, year long class was made possible by the National AIDS Fund. The class consisted of 16 students organized into 5 teams. Each team traveled to a different area of the United States profiling the lives of women living with HIV with an emphasis on the impact of the HIV virus on women of color. The highest rate of new HIV infections in the United States is occurring in women of color. For more information visit: http://documentaryforhealth.sfsu.myefolio.com/

                  • The Right to Education in the Aftermath of Hurricane Katrina: Community Voices


                    from D. Larke Added 198 0 0

                    In this video documentary, Hurricane Katrina survivors from the Lower 9th Ward narrate their experiences with racism and classism surrounding the ways in which the Louisiana state and the US governments responded to Hurricane Katrina. Working with a team of researchers, video taped interviews were conducted with community members and students from the Lower 9th Ward which were analyzed and woven together to create this mini documentary. Drawing on three themes reiterated throughout the several interviews, the video documents community members and students’ struggles in reclaiming their land and schools and creating an African centered curriculum. The video concludes by interviewees providing ways in which outsiders can work in collaboration with Hurricane Katrina survivors to help them rebuild their schools and return to their communities. The video’s narration and compilation was done by D. Larke, a White antiracist ally and a graduate student at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. By making this film, it is hoped that survivors will be provided a forum to voice their experiences and concerns, thus providing the rest of the world with a small glimpse of the atrocities that took place post Hurricane Katrina and encouragement for outsiders to begin working in collaboration with survivors to restore their homes, schools and communities back to working order.
