|A DOCUMENTARY SHORT by BRENT JOSEPH|
in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Holdout
is a portrait of an eccentric New Orleanian. Jimmy, a resident of the
Mid-City neighborhood, refused to evacuate for the storm. Despite being
surrounded by floodwaters for two weeks, he insisted on staying home to
care for his family of 18 pets. With helicopters and gunshots just outside
his window, Jimmy reflects on the death of his life long boyfriend who
died exactly one year earlier.
