Trouble the Water



I'm a documentary freak, when I'm not doing birth crack. Brent hates documentaries, so when he works night shifts sometimes I go on documentary watching sprees! :))))
Last night I watched this film, Trouble the Water. It was incredible. It is about one couple's experience during and after Hurricane Katrina, from deep in the 9th Ward, 3 blocks from a levee breach. They had no transportation out of the city when the evacuation order hit, so they couldn't get out. Their story is pretty inspiring. Good film.

I just watched the trailer. It looks very good.

Editor's note: Although the writer refers to her husband as 'hating' documentaries the editorial board knows this to be untrue. The referenced 'husband' likes documentaries but finds it sometimes exasperating when he is asked by the writer what type of movie she should get from the video store and he replies 'something we haven't seen that's entertaining' and the writer returns with an obscure documentary on the spread of foot fungus that's in an equally obscure language. Although educational, the choices made by the writer often fall outside of the 'entertaining' requirement and the really tired husband (who only slept 5 hours in the last 36) involuntarily catches up on his sleep while trying to spend 'quality time' with the writer. The editorial board requests that the writer make an immediate correction in order to convey a more balanced version of the truth.
