Alvar Library event
Local writer, producer, filmmaker and actress Helen Krieger will speak about her journey
making and showing her feature film, “Flood Streets”.
Originally from Wisconsin, Helen moved to New Orleans in 2001 to co-found a neighborhood newspaper, the Bywater Marigny Current. After Hurricane Katrina, she wrote the narrative feature Flood Streets which she co-produced with actor and comedian Harry Shearer. The film has won awards in festivals across the country and was recently picked up for distribution.
While shepherding the film through festivals, Krieger has also been able to develop the new comedy web series Least Favorite Love Songs, and to study improv comedy.
Alvar Arts is a community program bringing together local artists and an interested audience. Held on the third Thursday of each month from 7-9pm at the Alvar Branch Library in Bywater, it is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
Made possible by a grant from the New Orleans Public Library Foundation with support
from the Bywater Neighborhood Association, we hope to entertain you by showcasing a
wide range of artists, from musicians to cultural specialists to artisans to puppeteers!
COMING DECEMBER 20: Holiday Pot Luck Celebration with special guests The Honey pots - an amazing trio of women musicians who will get your holidays cooking!
