Interview with Olivia Peace
Director Olivia Peace talks about making her film “Pangaea”, which is featured in season 9 of AfroPop.
“Pangaea” is a short film written and directed by Olivia Peace. It tells the story of a young girl, trapped on the roof of her house during the days following the landfall of Hurricane Katrina. The film aims to comment on the lives of the children whose lives were drastically changed by the aftermath of the hurricane and the flooding that followed it, as well as on the role of those who experienced the events on television from the safety of their own living rooms. “Pangaea” was shot by a group of Northwestern University students over the course of a week in New Orleans, LA.
