Kartina's Son a powerful tale of how a young boy dealt with Hurricane Katrina
10 December 2010 | by (Dallas, Tx) – See all my reviews

The short film by Award Winning Director Ya'Ke Smith is truly moving and gripping. Its an amazingly shot short that concentrates on a young boy who escapes the ravages of Hurricane Katrina by trying to find his mother in Texas. Ya'Ke doesn't showcase the horrors of New Orleans after the Hurricane, instead we witness how this boy has to fend for himself. We see what happens when someone has to pick up everything they own and just leave.

Its a tough film to watch such a young boy having to grow up so quickly.

I highly recommend Katrina's Son to anyone that likes short films or likes films that ask you to see through the horror to the real heart of a story. This boy's courageous attitude may be sad to witness now, but you leave the film believing he will be a strong willed man in his later life.

Ya'Ke Smith has a unique voice and is a director I hope to watch for a long time.
