Jeanne Keller

Jeanne Keller was a part of the team of VISTA volunteers that made Must I Pay the Rent? (New Orleans Video Access Center, 1975). NOVAC was a VISTA project affiliated with the New Orleans Legal Aid Center, which produced educational videos for distribution via the new cable access channel in New Orleans. NOVAC was dedicated to using video as a social action and educational tool for the low-income community in the city. A video Keller co-produced at NOVAC with Kath Quinn and Casey Caldwell, Rape in New Orleans, part of the NOVAC "Survival Information Television" project, won an award for Best Documentary from the New Orleans Press Club, a surprising honor in those early days for a community-based cable access team.
