Storyline

A diverse group of New Orleans artists and musicians struggle to find meaning in their lives, work, and relationships one year after Katrina. A nuanced view of the city and its people, it shows the changing landscape of New Orleans as it has never been seen before, dispelling the stereotypes of Bourbon Street and Twenties' jazz to reveal the tragic, defiant, joyful city many call 'the Soul of America.'

Powerful, entertaining and absorbing film
30 September 2012 | by (Portland, OR) – See all my reviews

We saw Flood Streets at the Houston International Film Festival in its award winning debut and were overwhelmed by the quality and complexity of this super low budget film. Flood Streets definitely merits broader distribution and exposure to a wider audience. Joseph Meissner is a quiet, steely presence who glues the storyline and the many disparate characters together. Becky Stark is a memorable actress whose talent, both acting and singing, gives you smiles to take home and savor for weeks. Both Meissner and Stark should be "discovered" from this work. Helen Krieger's story rings so true that you forget that you are at the movies and feel that you are an observer following the characters around post-Kartrina New Orleans. The subtle way Krieger tells her story allows the audience to think and interpret for itself. The soundtrack of New Orleans jazz and a funky Klezmer band adds another level of joy for the film. Flood Streets is unique and memorable, there is nothing quite to compare it with. It should be in every film lover's collection.
