After the Fact studies the terrain of Holocaust documentaries subsequent to the turn of the twenty-first century. Until now most studies have centered primarily on canonical films such as Shoah and Night and Fog, but over the course of the last ten years filmmaking practices have altered dramatically. Changing techniques, diminishing communities of survivors, and the public's response to familiar, even iconic imagery, have all challenged filmmakers to radically revise and newly envision how they depict the Holocaust. Innovative styles have emerged, including groundbreaking techniques of incorporating archival footage, survivor testimony, and reenactment. Carrying wider implications for the fields of Film Studies, Jewish Studies, and Visual Studies, this book closely analyzes ten contemporary and internationally produced films, most of which have hardly been touched upon in the critical literature or elsewhere.

Katrina After the Fact is a poignant look at life in New Orleans after the storm. Told through the eyes of a local, the author takes you through the personal side of Katrina's aftermath. The subtitle says it all with chapters that run the gamut, from waxing nostalgic in "Real New Orleanians" and "Do You Know What it Means to Miss the Cuisine?" to "The Sounds of New Orleans," which details fictional, but disturbing accounts of those left behind to weather the storm. Fed up with government gaffes and inefficiency, the author takes aim on the endless bureaucracy holding the city's residents back from rebuilding and getting on with their lives. You won't be able to put down this descriptive and emotional rollercoaster ride as the author paints a humorous and sometimes frightening picture as colorful as the city itself.

“Where Are They Now?” meets History 101. We’re all familiar with the seminal events and key players in our nation’s history. But what about the lives lived after the fact? Picking up where traditional histories leave off, After the Fact uncovers the telling details of history’s most compelling subplots: After his famous midnight ride, Paul Revere was later kicked out of the militia for his role in the Penobscot Expedition, the most disastrous military blunder of the Revolutionary War. Consumed with guilt over his role as a magistrate in the Salem Witch Trials, Samuel Sewell became an advocate for both African and Native American rights. Years after clashing with bootleggers like Al Capone, former Prohibition agent Eliot Ness was involved in a hit-and-run accident while driving under the influence of alcohol. After her famous bus ride, Rosa Parks worked as a seamstress, performed behind-the-scenes volunteer work for the NAACP, and sued the band Outkast. After resigning the presidency, Richard Nixon unwittingly testified on behalf of Deep Throat in an unrelated conspiracy trial.
