The subjects of the film captured some very raw and potent footage right before and during Katrina and the breaking of the levees... very hard to watch, but very important to watch IMO.b,121b, 21The NY Times called it "Superb... one of the best American documentaries in recent memory."b,121b, 21A major film, for b1FREE/b1 before it opens in town, b1with the filmmakers/b1 hosting!b,121b,121Here's what City Paper said ( a href="" target="_blank"1 ):b,121b,121Critic's Pick/b1b,121b, 21Kim and Scott Roberts were two of the far too many New Orleans residents left to survive Hurricane Katrina on their own, only they weathered the flood and its displacing aftermath with a camcorder in tow. Incorporating the Roberts' harrowing footage from during Katrina's wrath, producers/directors Carl Deal and Tia Lessin wisely stay out of the way in Trouble the Water, which offers a firsthand witnessing to this devastating moment in American history. Tonight the Maryland Film Festival offers a free screening of this riveting documentary. (Bret McCabe)b,121b, 21img src=""1
