Movie Info

Spike Lee documents life in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina destroyed the city's anti-flooding safeguards in 2005. In the film, New Orleans residents tell their stories and vent their anger -- some calmly, some with unbridled rage -- at the callousness displayed by their local, state and national leaders. Survivors share their own heartbreaking tales, leveling charges and challenges at the officials who failed to protect their lives, their homes and their city.
