This screening will be part of Floodwall, an art installation comprised of 350 drawers by American artist Jana Napoli. It is a poignant testimony to the cataclysm that devastated New Orleans five years ago: on 29 August 2005. In an effort to commemorate the tragedy of the city and its residents, Napoli collected hundreds of drawers that had been spread among the debris in the water and mud, and reassembled them to create a piece of art intended as a monument to the victims.
