After Hurricane Katrina, filmmakers Ed Pincus and Lucia Small get in a car and decide to investigate. Their trek takes them to New Orleans, where they find that the failure of a particular levee has had a devastating impact on many African-American families. As they become characters in their own documentary, Pincus and Small head to Texas, where thousands of the displaced have relocated, and they chronicle the difficulty many Katrina survivors have in securing governmental aid.
The Vermont International Film Festival is a non-profit organization whose mission is to enrich the community and bring the world to Vermont through film.
Launched in 2014 by a group of filmmakers, archivists and concerned members of the public who wished to ensure the survival of artists’ films in Vermont, VAMP officially became a program of VTIFF in May 2015. The VAMP committee has broadened the initial concept to include all types of films and videos made by VT filmmakers or shot in Vermont.
