Big Charity Hospital

I look forwarded to seeing this documentary on one of New Orleans’ important landmarks. What will become of “Big Charity?”


Five years in the making, this film was born from an insatiable curiosity about Charity Hospital an iconic and beautiful, yet somehow abandoned building in downtown New Orleans. Former Charity staff and community members served as a constant resource during the making of this film, opening their lives up to us, our questions and our cameras, to share what we’d never know in our own the real meaning of Charity Hospital. In addition to conducting dozens of interviews and shooting hundreds of hours of original footage, we collected a huge amount of rare, archival footage from numerous sources ranging from medical university libraries to The Discovery Channel.
