Film Series 2008 - Low & Behold
Contemporary Arts Center
The Contemporary Arts Center and New Orleans Film Society present monthly screenings of independent films and shorts you otherwise won't see in New Orleans.
This month's feature is Low and Behold. Winner, Narrative Feature Award, New Orleans Film Festival 2007.
Turner Stull (Barlow Jacobs), an uninspired young man, trying to figure out what he wants to do with his life, arrives in hurricane-ravaged New Orleans to work as an insurance claims adjuster. Greeted by his Uncle Stully (Robert Longstreet) a seasoned claim adjuster, he is quickly immersed into the routine: move fast, don't get emotionally involved, and make a lot of money. But Turner, not prepared to deal with people who have lost everything, is totally overwhelmed, and his lack of experience and uncertainty only make things worse.
In a moment of crisis, Turner agrees to help Nixon (Eddie Rouse), a local man, find his lost dog. In exchange, Nixon lends a hand with Turner's insurance claims. Turner and Nixon begin to navigate their way through the storm-ravaged city, a journey that changes both their lives.
Directed by Zack Godshall.
