This memorable and highly evocative documentary examines the effects of Hurricane Katrina through the eyes, voices, and drawings of the city's children. With their disarming honesty and innocent wisdom, the children are at once witnesses, victims, heroes and survivors. The film, like the children, is both deeply moving and at times refreshingly funny. By focusing exclusively on children's experiences, "Katrina's Children" humanizes this epic storm and seeks to understand the tragic ramifications in a small intimate way. The children’s artwork is brought to life through animation and captures with vivid poignancy the children’s interior universe. Aching with sadness, yet grounded in hope, "Katrina's Children" is ultimately a celebration of children’s extraordinary resilience and a tribute to New Orleans’ unique and indomitable spirit.
