Shake the Devil Off - Documentary

Activists, some say Anarchists, occupied this church when the parishioners were locked out by the church and held the space long enough to draw major media attention to the situation.  The church reamains opperational.   I'm very proud to have played my part in this drama.

There is another film currently being produced about this "occupation"
but Shake the Devil Off seems to have done a really good job of putting all into historical context.

History of St. Augustine Church

St. Augustine Church, built by free black people with slave labour in 1841, was the first place of worship where slaves, free people of color and whites sat side by side in prayer. It is a highly significant symbol for the African-American community in America.

Kindra's Window ~ full movie

This film follows the lives of Kindra Arnesen and family from Hurricane Katrina through the BP Oil Disaster from their perspective in Venice Louisianan; first land fall of Katrina and closest populated land mass to the Deep Water Horizon site.  

Gulf Coast Disasters, long removed from the news cycle, are eating away at the livelihoods and patriotism of those left behind to deal with the front lines of the environmental and economic terrorism that is the legacy of our government.

Hurricane Katrina: Anarchy in New Orleans

I witnessed Anarchy in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.  It came in many forms and colors and it was scary, real scary and there were goblins and unicorns flying out the asses of the drowned.  Abosolute chaos.  I filmed it all just for you.  Be warned this is hardcore shit.  ;~)  Ⓐ

Waveland, Missahippie

This was how I spent Thanksgiving 2005.  It was truely an awesome experience.

The Rainbow Emergency Management Assembly gathered in Waveland Missahippie within days of the hurricane disaster, to feed people. They have receieved nothing but love and support from FEMA, Red Cross, numerous Church groups and Hancock County. It is said that before Katrina hippies would refer to Mississippi as MissAHippie because a hippie could easily go "missing" in Mississippi. Now Missahippie has a whole new meaning. The story of Waveland is that of people putting aside petty differences to do what's right and needed by our community of man.

This feabile attempt to tell an amazing tale of cross cultural volunteerism features: Vermin Supreme, Dirty Momma, Heather Bee, Pete Jones, Ben Cauldwell, Doc Stone, Organic Valley, the residents of Waveland Mississippi ... and Flower
