Trouble the Water Airs 4/23 on HBO

19 April 2009

A documentary that the film group had recently looked into bringing to town, Trouble the Water, will be shown this Thursday, April 23 from 8:30-10:15 PM on HBO.

New Orleans’ Ninth Ward residents Kimberly Rivers Roberts and husband Scott didn’t have the means to leave town when Hurricane Katrina blew in. But they did have a camcorder, and Kimberly’s harrowing footage of her neighborhood’s nightmarish ordeal is woven seamlessly into directors Tia Lessin and Carl Deal’s Oscar-nominated documenatry about the disaster. Human in scale, the film follows the charismatic Robertses and their family and friends as they rebuild their lives after the storm. It’s a fascinating, heartbreaking, and hopeful must-see.

[Rating:] A–Missy Schwartz in Entertainment Weekly,  April 24-May1 issue
