The Fourth Katrinaversary, Featuring Paradise Faded

We’re excited to announce that we’re over 115 home or community screenings of the powerful documentary, “Paradise Faded: The Fight for Louisiana” on or around the Katrinaversary, August 29th. From Puerto Rico to Portland, our activists, bolstered by support from Sierra Club groups, Tulane and LSU alumni clubs and others (perhaps recruited by REM, Galactic or Marc Broussard) have stepped up to host events commemorating the devastating hurricane season of 2005.We’ve got a couple of events mixing Jared Arsenalt’s film with music, one in Columbus Ohio (featuring music by Long Tall Deb and the Drifter Kings) and GRN’s own Flood Washington Fest at One Eyed Jacks in the French Quarter, and featuring Anders Osborne playing with Galactic’s Stanton Moore, Rebirth founding member Kirk Joseph, and Leon “Kid Chocolate” Brown.Of course, every event will be able to boast some NOLA music, as thanks to Basin Street Records, we were able to include a BSR Festival Sampler in every screening kit – hosts will be able to treat their guests to some great mood music before and after the screening with tracks from Kermit Ruffins, Jeremy Davenport, Henry Butler, Theresa Andersson and lots of other great artists.No matter what other bells and whistles hosts have added though, the film is really all folks need for an effective evening of action for our coastal crisis. Check out the trailer if you don’t believe me. We hope you can make it out to an event near you. Head to this page to search for a public event in your neck of the woods. Nothing close by? You’re always welcome at One Eyed Jacks!!Aaron Viles is GRN’s Campaign Director
