There are few places whiter than Salt Lake City, but that didn’t prevent a sizable number of African-American New Orleanians from relocating there after Hurricane Katrina left them homeless. Director Alex LeMay kicks off this racially charged documentary by relating, with tragicomic verve, how the refugees were welcomed by being placed in a military camp outside of town and subjected to a curfew. But the lengthy and often heartbreaking interview sequences in the second half ultimately reveal a story that is, metaphorically at least, a tad less black-and-white.
