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.'

Flood Streets is a film about recovery, rebuilding, and large amounts of weed
23 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

I had the honor to see Flood Streets at the Boston International Film Festival, and I was absolutely blown away by what I saw. Flood Streets is a marvelous film about life in Post-Katrina New Orleans. The lives depicted in Flood Streets aren't extraordinary. The characters don't solve crimes or save the city, they aren't decision makers or "important people", they're just average New Orleans residents, trying to get by in the ruins around them. Flood Streets is both entertaining and moving. There are both lighthearted and touching moments, as well as sobering and moving ones. Flood Streets is driven by its dedicated actors, who act out one of the most authentic and real screenplays in a very long time. Helen Krieger's script is hands down of the best since "The Social Network", but it has a level of authenticity that only comes from being a New Orleans, Louisiana resident. Everything about Flood Streets is downright perfect from start to finish.
