FEAR NO GUMBO
a Raw Sneak Peek Preview
Re-scheduled: DATE TBD
Kimberly Rivers Roberts, co-director of the Academy Award Nominated documentary Trouble the Water, has recently completed a follow-up documentary about what it's been like to watch New Orleans "recover" over the past 11 years.
Fear No Gumbo is a well-rounded, inspirational story of recovery. It not only exposes the many disservices her community has endured following the mass devastation of Hurricane Katrina, but also shows the rich culture and many charms the city has to offer – exactly what many are fighting to save.
In this film you’ll witness Kimberly taking on big money juggernauts with issues like gentrification and zoning laws. She also fights for her artistic credit and to get the images and stories about Katrina back to their rightful owners, the survivors. In this film you’ll see the love and passion that this city’s residents have for their culture and history and why it is worth fighting for.
RAW SNEAK PEEK
We're calling this a "Raw Sneak Peek Preview" for a couple reasons. The film is very close to a final, but they might make a few more tweaks to it after gauging audience reaction at this screening.
Also, Indywood is still under construction downstairs, so we're going to hold this screening upstairs. We sure hope we can be open up proper some day soon (bad news from City Hall this week. Will the permits ever end?).
This is always a loaded time of year in New Orleans. We're glad to have the opportunity to screen a film the at pushes the post-Katrina conversation forward.
