Trouble The Water

The Peace and Justice Center of Nevada County is pleased to present “Trouble the Water” an unforgettable documentary taking us into the eye of the Katrina Hurricane –  the storm, the devastation and its aftermath.  Winner at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, this astonishingly powerful documentary is at once horrifying and exhilarating. Directed and produced by Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine producers Tia Lessin and Carl Deal.

“Trouble the Water” is more than just a tale of survival, it is also captures the abysmal failures of FEMA in handling the devastated New Orleans community.  “Trouble the Water” shows Friday March 22, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at the Madelyn Helling Library, 980 Helling Way (near the Rood Center), Nevada City.   Come for the film, and stay for the discussion to follow.  $10.00 suggested donation and free tea and organic popcorn!
