New movie: Trouble the Water

It's about a hurricane. It's about America.

Trouble the Water tells the story of a young New Orleans' couple - trapped by the deadly floodwaters of Hurricane Katrina - who courageously survive the storm and its calamitous aftermath. It chronicles their flight from home and their quest to rebuild their lives and Lower Ninth Ward community. It's a powerful story of community fortitude in the face of adversity, and a look into one of the most defining moments in our recent history.

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, Trouble the Water is directed and produced by Tia Lessin and Carl Deal, producers of Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine. Danny Glover and Jocelyn Barnes are executive producers.
