Luisa Dantas is the director of Land of Opportunity, a documentary that uses the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to ask the question, ‘what kind of cities do we want to live in?’ Dantas and her team are now working on an interactive web experience that utilises the unused footage from the film as well as a range of other material.
The aim is to create an online experience that is relevant for urban inhabitants beyond New Orleans, dealing with similar questions of urban renewal and inequality. The Center for Social Media has interviewed Dantas about what she is learning as a traditional filmmaker going through the process of making an online experience; read the interview here.
