"Salt Dreams" produced by JT Nebitt and Dreams on Film, and directed by David White, this film documents how on September 7 2007, a small band of New Orleanians embarked on a 2000 mile trek in an attempt to set a land speed record at the historic Bonneville Salt Flats. The car, a 1998 Lincoln Mark 8 that was completely destroyed by the floodwaters of Hurricane Katrina, is transformed into a race car by an abstract group of friends. They become “The New Orleans Race Team” competing on an international level, not just as individuals, but as representatives of the last Bohemia in America. This is their story of loss and redemption in the midst of violence and tragedy, and of a community struggling to redefine its identity.
