EMERGING ARTIST/ HONORABLE MENTION: “Portrait of a Storm: Tuscaloosa, AL”
Submitted by a graduate student in cinematography, Portrait of a Storm provides a video commentary on the role of government in the aftermath of natural disasters.
“Events like the Tuscaloosa and Oklahoma City tornados and hurricanes Katrina and Sandy remind us that we are connected by a common vulnerability and humanity. As global climate change increases our exposure to extreme weather, 'Portrait of a Storm' raises important questions about the role of government in times of disaster and our collective responsibility to one another.” - Looking@Democracy judge Ian Inaba
