(USA/2008/Directed by Tia Lessin and Carl Deal)  

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, this astonishingly powerful new documentary takes you inside Hurricane Katrina in a way never before seen on screen. Incorporating remarkable video shot by Kimberly Roberts – an aspiring rap artist trapped in the devastated 9th Ward – Bowling for Columbine producers Lessin and Deal weave this insider’s portrait with a stunning portrait of the disaster’s aftermath. This is a redemptive tale of self-described street hustlers who become heroes – two unforgettable survivors who valiantly struggle to seize a chance for a new beginning. (96 min.)

“Superb… One of the best American documentaries in recent memory.”            -Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
