A screening of a film by Zack Godshall at the Contemporary Arts Center.
The Southern Review presents a free screening of Lafayette native Zack Godshall’s Low and Behold (2007), which was filmed in New Orleans as a direct response to Hurricane Katrina. Godshall’s film premiered at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, and it was one of the first works of fiction to come out of the storm’s aftermath. Low and Behold humorously and heart-breakingly follows Turner Stull, a young insurance adjuster, as he navigates the physical and emotional wreckage of an unnamed natural disaster in the city. Watch a trailer for the film here.
The screening is part of The Southern Review’s 80th anniversary celebration, and the event also highlights the publication’s Summer 2015 issue, which includes writings by Godshall, John Biguenet, and Alison Pelegrin that reflect on the ten years that have passed since Katrina. Godshall, Biguenet, and Pelegrin will be present to discuss the film and their work.
This event is free and open to the public. The Summer 2015 issue of The Southern Review will be available for purchase.
