In this powerful non-narrative short subject from director Ben Mor, three young boys wander through the wreckage of New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The boys find three masks -- on the inside, each is emblazoned with the words "Help Is Coming," and on the outside they feature the likenesses of President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and New Orleans mayor C. Ray Nagin. As the boys witness the devastation of the city and some surreal tableaux (wrecked limousines, cars being towed by mules), they stop at a bridge and make a playful gesture that symbolizes the ineffectual "aid" given the city in its hour of need. Help Is Coming was screened as part of the 2007 Los Angeles Film Festival.
