Trailer: “The Church on Dauphine Street”
Posted on June 9, 2012 at 8:00 am
A church, a priest, two kindred spirits, and the kindness of strangers. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, when nearly all hope was drowned in the flood, one church in the Upper Ninth Ward of New Orleans did not give up. This is a story about Father Joseph Benson, a Northern Irishman, and Arthine Vicks, an ex-Marine fluent in American Sign Language: two unlikely allies working to reunite one of New Orleans’ most unusual, most independent congregations. It is a powerful story of inspiration, hope, and home. You can view the entire movie on Hulu.
