What is it really like to be homeless, hungry, hot and sweaty, nearly broke, or shivering and alone? While many of us have seen it on TV, what would it take for someone to leave his home and drive across the country to experience it first hand?
On 26 September 2005, Carlin Comm left Wenatchee, WA, driving cross-country, to make an independent video documentary of the survivors of Hurricane Katrina and Rita. Rather than being funded by corporate sponsorship or other media organization, his mission was largely self funded, and supported by friends, neighbors, and family.
In all, I was away from home for 40 days, drove 6502 Miles, was in 19 States, burned 358 Gallons of Gas, and had 1 Bad Tire!
Survivors Stories is an independant documentary featuring stories from Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita, 2005. Please take a few minutes to explore the site here for more information. Thank you!
