The Axe in the Attic

2007 NR

In the bleak wake of Hurricane Katrina, filmmakers Ed Pincus and Lucia Small embark on a 60-day road trip from New England to Louisiana. Along the way, they meet and interview a host of evacuees who share their tumultuous tales. Issues of race, class, gender and governmental responsibility are explored in the unsettling, moving and often funny documentary, which premiered at the 2007 New York Film Festival.
