So the Wind Won't Blow It All Away
POV Season 22
Short Film | 09/22/2009 | 10 Mins

So the Wind Won’t Blow It All Away reveals how the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina continues to have impact on the lives of its victims — and how entire families are among the casualties. The film tells the story of a determined group of teenagers who, more than two years after Hurricane Katrina devastated their homes and scattered their families, return to New Orleans alone and struggle to graduate from high school with their more fortunate friends. So the Wind Won’t Blow It All Away is a touching and shocking exposé of the abandoned children of Louisiana, but it is also a bracing portrait of teens who won’t be defeated by their abandonment. So the Wind Won’t Blow it All Away will be broadcast with Bronx Princess.
