Abstract:

On August 29th, 2005, a catastrophic hurricane named Katrina made landfall on the Gulf coast of the United States. When the skies finally cleared, the survival of New Orleans hung in the balance. In the wake of this devastating event, as Americans continue a dialogue about the future of one of the nation's most distinctive cities, PBS American Experience presents New Orleans, a provocative history of the city that lies at the mouth of the mighty Mississippi. Over the course of two compelling hours, the film tells the story of America's most original urban culture, through rich archival photographic material, footage miraculously spared from the devastation, and a mingling of first-hand interviews with city natives including, Leah Chase, "The Queen of Creole Cuisine," stonemason Teddy Pierre, and renowned jazz musician Irvin Mayfield.
