"TODAY" A New Movie

Ashé Cultural Arts Center
1712 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., New Orleans

TODAY is the only film of its kind, the true story of one day in the life of three families in New Orleans, after Hurricane Katrina. Stylistically bold, each scene shot with gripping intimacy, this film is about far more than just New Orleans. In the heroism of Robert McPeek, a policeman patrolling the crime ridden city, in the struggle of Alice and Lewis Blaise to catch just one fish to feed their children, in the tragic life passions of young Angelo Stanich Jr.--amidst three fascinating families and their prayers, songs, fights, laughter, and love, TODAY is the story of a day in the life of America, in all of its beautiful, disturbing, hilarious glory.
