Trouble the Water

Trouble the Water is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen.

Of course it is hard for me to to be objective because of the bizarre meta aspect that Kimberly Rivers Roberts is my neighbor and so much of her footage is the familiar terrain of my neighborhood. The film is beautifully made, but also an important document of what is was really like around here for those of us who weren’t in a position to evacuate.

Trouble the Water should be required viewing for all New Orleanians, actually, I’m gonna say it should be required viewing for all Americans. As the tag line says, “It’s not about a hurricane. It’s about America.”

Screening tonight at 6:30 pm at the Tulane University Woldenberg Art Center Freeman Auditorium. The filmmakers Carl Deal and Tia Lessin will be in attendance for discussion following the screening. Free!
