LAFAYETTE, LA – The Acadiana Center for the Arts (AcA), the Center for Cultural and Eco-Tourism (CCET) and the Media Arts Workshop at the University of Louisiana continues the free film series Film @ the Center on Sunday, September 19, 2010 at 2PM with a film on the post-Katrina aftermath in New Orleans.

LOW AND BEHOLD (2007)
96 min.
No Rating

This award-winning film generated buzz in the filmmaker's home city of Lafayette, Louisiana as well as nationally. Zack Godshall portrays an "unflinching yet touching story of friendship and loss," in New Orleans' post-Katrina aftermath.

Based on real events, Low and Behold tells the story of Turner Stull (Barlow Jacobs), a young insurance claims adjuster in post-Katrina New Orleans who risks his job to help a local man, Nixon (Eddie Rouse), find his lost dog. As this unlikely pair traverses the city, Turner comes to discover that some damage is immeasurable. Filmed on location in New Orleans only months after Hurricane Katrina, Low and Behold blurs the line between reality and fiction, creating a mosaic of images, faces, and voices that together make for a unique cinematic experience.
