City Of Memory Screening says
In partnership with the New Orleans Film Society, on August 18, 2015 the Ogden Museum of Southern Art will screen the film City of Memory, in observation of the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The film will be preceded an opportunity to view The Rising with Curator of Photography Richard McCabe and followed by a Q & A with the film’s director, Robert Adanto.

City of Memory, explores the ways in which the cataclysmic events in the wake of Hurricane Katrina became imprinted on the memory of visual artists who lived through them. The film documents the unique ability of New Orleans’ artists to react when faced with catastrophe. From what looked like the death of a great American city emerged a generation of artists whose energy might prove a source of renewal for the rest of the world. Artists featured in the film include: Samuel Portera, Deborah Luster, Tameka Norris, Miranda Lake, Gina Phillips, Hannah Chalew, John Woodin, Rondell Crier, Jennifer Shaw, Kevin Kline, Jana Napoli, Rontherin Ratliff, and David Spielman.
