What people are saying about Land of Opportunity:

LAND OF OPPORTUNITY is an important part of the New Orleans story. It gets down and dirty with the people on the ground. Five years in the making, Luisa’s film gives voice to everyday people working hard to rebuild their city and their lives. Anyone who cares about the future of cities in this country should see this movie!


- Spike Lee

You have produced a project that transcends its boundaries – that of being a documentary about Katrina and its aftermath. Instead it is a documentary project about the current state of our nation. […] I think its biggest asset is its ability to portray beyond New Orleans, its characters and situations. These characters and situations, in fact, can be presently found throughout the U.S.


Alvaro Donado, Independent Filmmaker and Producer

I was involved with Katrina solidarity work for several years, so I knew the history of the housing struggle. But even though I knew many of the stories, I sat breathless for 2 hours as I watched the film. The way you have centered people’s stories and let the stories speak for both the oppression and resistance is truly awesome.

- Sharon Martinas, co-editor of ‘A Katrina Reader’ on line (katrinareader.org)

I especially appreciate the focus on organizing, which I feel like is something no other documentary has shown to the same extent. I appreciate that the film ends with a sense of urgency- hopeful but not rosy.
