HBO Original Documentary KATRINA BABIES Debuts August 24

An Intimate Look At The Aftermath Of Hurricane Katrina And Its Impact On The Youth Of New Orleans 

The HBO documentary KATRINA BABIES, directed by first-time filmmaker and New Orleans native Edward Buckles, Jr., debuts WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 24 (9:00-10:25 p.m. ET/PT). The film, produced by Invisible Pictures, TIME Studios, Creative Control and House of the Young Entertainment, will debut on HBO and be available to stream on HBO Max.

Sixteen years after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, an entire generation still grapples with the lifelong impact of having their childhood redefined by tragedy. New Orleans filmmaker Edward Buckles Jr., who was 13 years old during Katrina and its initial aftermath, spent seven years documenting the stories of his peers who survived the storm as children, using his community's tradition of oral storytelling to open a door for healing and to capture the strength and spirit of his city.
