"I first met Nadia in New Orleans days after Katrina —we’d never met, but were suddenly thrown into a disaster area together. We had to stay safe from rampaging paramilitary types, locate a place to sleep at night, sharing laughs, tears, and outrage, all while trying to find a story. That’s when I became one of the many enamored fans of Nadia Hallgren. She’s a smart and resourceful filmmaker, and a terrific person. And, lets face it, filmmaking always feels a little bit like navigating an unfolding disaster."
