Event Description
An Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary, Trouble the Water (2008, Dir. Carl Deal & Tia Lessin) follows the story of residents of the Lower Ninth Ward after Hurricane Katrina destroyed the district. Trouble the Water famously draws attention to issues of race, class, and the relationship of a government to its citizens as they presented themselves in the weeks, months, and years post-Katrina.
