2008 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize Winner (Documentary)

Trouble the Water is an extremely visceral account which begins from the perspective of a couple (aspiring rap artist Kimberly Roberts and her husband Scott Roberts) who filmed their neighborhood the day before and the day of Hurricane Katrina with a camcorder they had bought on the street a week earlier. This story of survival under extreme conditions touches on issues of race and class and the stratification of our society, and speaks to anyone interested in the “state of our union” and the upcoming election.

You need a flash player to see this movie.
