Over the holiday weekend, a group of Portlanders gathered to commemorate Martin Luther King Day by screening a film on the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans.
Homeowners in the lower ninth ward have faced forced demolition of their homes, closure of public housing projects, and an ongoing diaspora from their homes in New Orleans.Here's some words from filmmaker Daniel Wolff, who spoke this weekend in Portland.
Laurie Sonnenfeld interviews Todd Kwait, Director of the new documentary film "Chasin' Gus' Ghost", a history of Jug Band Music from the '20's on. The film will show during the NW Film Center's "Reel Music" film series on January 29, 2008. You can Watch the Trailer on YouTube or you can Buy Tickets here
