7:00 PM – Screening of NEO NED by Van Fischer

Like most kids, Ned (Jeremy Renner) idolized his father, dreaming of one day following in his footsteps. Unfortunately his father was a two-bit crook who spent most of his life in jail. Without a family of his own, Ned falls in with the Aryan Brotherhood and is soon after placed in a mental hospital, where he is mesmerized by a young African-American girl (Gabrielle Union) who believes Adolf Hitler was reincarnated within her. What follows is a gritty character study and poignant love story of 2 people brought together by a seemingly impossible connection, both discovering that there is more to a person than what lies on the surface. (97 minutes) FREE admission and refreshments. Seating is limited. Please rsvp at mail@charitablefilmnetwork.org.

The New Orleans Loving Festival (NOLF) is a Multiracial Community Celebration & Film Festival that challenges racial discrimination through outreach and education. NOLF is an initiative of the Charitable Film Network.
