Why It's FilmBuff
Over five years since Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans and the subject is just as relevant as ever. An in-depth look at what made Katrina a man-made disaster, this documentary is one of the first to have a famous resident, Harry Shearer, use his clout to get answers regarding what actually happened to New Orleans. Hearing from the scientists on the scene right after the hurricane, they make engineering elements accessible. Also, the video graphics explaining how each area of New Orleans was struck during the disaster brings the viewer into an even deeper level of understanding. Never have we seen such an insiders account be so moving and informative.
