Summary
This documentary takes the viewer inside Hurricane Katrina in a way never seen on screen. Incorporating home footage shot by Kimberly Rivers Roberts -- an aspiring rap artist trapped with her husband in the 9th ward -- directors/producers Tia Lessin and Carl Deal weave this insider's view of Katrina with a devastating protrait of the hurricane's aftermath. Trouble the Water takes audiences on a journey that is by turns heart-stopping, infuriating, inspiring and empowering. It is not only about the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina, but about the underlying issues that remained when the flood waters receded -- failing public schools, record high levels of incarceration, poverty, structural racism and lack of government accountability
