A little boy and his dog travel through ruins of a fallen city to a place he will never forget

10 years past, Hurricane Katrina still affects the citizens that call New Orleans home. Whether memories were washed away or family members disappeared, the people continue to strive to bring the city back to what they once knew. BOY reflects on a community, but also transcends its theme to who ever has been through the devastation of natural disasters. Lives might be loss but hope and strength is always gained.

 

Currently, BOY is running the film festival circuit, being accepted at both the Los Angeles CineFest and Speechless Film Festival.  The IndieGoGo campaign is to find assistance in raising festival fees for the larger, international events so BOY's message can be seen around the world.

 

The video below discusses the campaign and the story behind the film.
