LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – America Online’s AOL Black Voices is set to screen the feature documentary “New Orleans: My Home, My Life, My Love” Monday as the centerpiece of its Hurricane Katrina-related broadband package.

Other content includes original articles, photo essays and exclusive reportage covering the aftermath of the natural disaster. The special section of http://www.BlackVoices.com also offers extensive opportunities for community involvement and interaction.

Director Jamie Balthazar said the initiative is a “unique opportunity to share these true, often heartbreaking stories” with an audience larger than most independent filmmakers could reach.

“This is a fantastic platform to build interest in this documentary,” she said. “We’re looking forward to working with AOL to make a difference in the lives of those impacted by Hurricane Katrina.”

The movie will be shown in seven installments available on-demand and free of charge. Each chapter will remain archived and accessible for viewing after its debut.

BlackVoices.com has more than 2.8 million unique visitors a month, according to Janet Rolle, wvp and general manager of AOL Black Voices. The service also can be accessed through AOL.com and is part of the company’s ad-supported services that do not require a subscription.
