“They Dont Care About Us”: New Orleans housing (in)justice

My friend put together this trailer for a film he is working on. Given so many past themes of Michal J. Jackson and New Orleans, I felt compelled to share:


Update: just to clarify its not a trailer for their full length documentary, its a special intro for pieces (which can be found here) on housing justice made for the 4th anniversary of katrina. The website also has the trailer for their full documentary.

also. while we at it, my friends Alixa and Naima, who are in cahoots as Climbing PoeTree have a road show called Hurricane Season, which you should catch in yr town as it rolls through. It deals with the continuity between post Katrina exploitation and repression of black people all the way back to the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. And its fierce. Respek:

so long,
Sunshine Superboy
