Movie Info

Spike Lee's follow-up to When the Levees Broke (2006) revisits New Orleans and the Gulf Coast to monitor improvements in housing, education, infrastructure, the economy, and social services since Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The nearly four-hour documentary features interviews with public and private citizens, including former Louisiana governor Kathleen Blanco, New Orleans mayor Mitch Landrieu, and historian Douglas Brinkley, as well as an assessment of the immediate impact of the offshore oil-rig explosion in April 2010.

Critic Reviews for If God Is Willing and Da Creek Don't Rise

All Critics (2) | Fresh (2)
