Happening Here: An Evening of Theater, Poetry, Film and Food

Louisiana Justice Institute encourages you to check out the first local screening of Land of Opportunity, a multi-platform documentary project that follows people from different walks of life through the post-Katrina reconstruction of this city.

During the last four and a half years, footage and short pieces from the film have been used as tools for organizing and education and even featured in art exhibits in New Orleans and across the country. According to the filmmakers:
After years of filming, we and our partners want to share this work with our friends and family: the entire New Orleans community! Please join us as we present this evening of performances and film to designed to inspire, educate, and galvanize.
This event also features the brilliant poet Sunni Patterson and The New Orleans Day Labor Theater of Revolution.
