Director: Hilla MedaliaWriter: Hilla MedaliaStars: Rayan Arnold, Annie Britton, Eric T. Calhoun Jr.Summary: After the Storm is a feature-length documentary film that follows a group of New York Broadway actors who were inspired to help the youth of New Orleans. They stage a musical theater production of the Broadway play "Once on this Island" with local teenagers at the St. Marks Community Center located at the edge of the French Quarter. The film follows the crew and the kids from auditions through performances and also includes the story of each young actor's life in the wake of Katrina.' The story of the musical reflects very much so the life in New Orleans post Katrina. Written by Anonymous
