2006 Art and Change Grant

Tina created a video documentary entitled Belly of the Basin, based on the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and their impact on the South. The film explores what happens to marginalized people displaced by natural disaster, and documents grassroots community-based leaders throughout the South. Tina wanted this video to serve as an organizing and networking tool for groups doing similar work with Katrina victims/evacuees, because people often don't know of others doing similar work in neighboring states. More than just entertainment or information, this film pulls groups together and creates strong political networks. Tina organized screenings across the country, focusing on the areas hit hardest by the hurricanes.
