DOCUMENTARY

Filmed in roughly one month between the end of October and the begining of December 2005, Courtney Sell's film is an honest portrayal of Jac Currie’s life after Katrina and one of his first trips back to the Gulf Coast after being stranded in New York.

It shows Defend New Orleans’ transition to a valid social aid project and documents some of the destruction in New Orleans and on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Shot entirely on a handheld hi-8 video camera, No Place Like Home, features a moving soundtrack made by musicians personally connected with the subjects and interviews with friends who survived Katrina in New Orleans.

The film won best picture at the Blue November Film Festival in November 2006, and will be featured in the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival in July of 2007.
