Trouble The Water (2008)
Release Date: 20 January 2008
Documentary shot in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. In the Ninth Ward of devastated New Orleans, aspiring musician Kimberly Roberts aka Black Kold Madina and her husband Scott capture the arrival of the storm on their video camera and interview many of their friends and neighbours as levees broke and the flood waters rose. As the Roberts and thousands of other stricken families struggle to rebuild their lives, the film documents the indifference of the US government, abandoning these helpless and hopeless people to fend for themselves in appalling conditions.
