Description
Hurricane Katrina. The mere mention of those words conjures up horrific images of a natural disaster made all the more horrendous because of the manmade failure that followed. Acclaimed director Spike Lee became documentarian for this powerful HBO special. Not only does he go back to the damaged area to catch up on the folks left stranded but he also delves into the reasons why there was such a breakdown of law, order and support. It's the definitive word on a dark tragedy in modern American history.


Audio Commentary: Audio commentaries by filmmaker Spike Lee
Other: Next Movement- an epilogue
Photo gallery: photos by David Lee and music by Terembe Blanchard

    Comments about this product:

    I loved the video. It is a classic of informed commentary. But there were technical glitches in the disc production...the picture sometimes broke into pixels and the sound garbled along with the visual decay.
