Friday Free Film At Cafe Rozella Tonight: Spike Lee’s “When The Levees Broke”
Did we mention that it’s FREE? As in…NO COVER?
From the HBO website:
As the world watched in horror, Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans on August 29, 2005.
Like many who watched the unfolding drama on television news, director Spike Lee was shocked not only by the scale of the disaster, but by the slow, inept and disorganized response of the emergency and recovery effort.
Lee was moved to document this modern American tragedy, a morality play witnessed by people all around the world.
The result is WHEN THE LEVEES BROKE: A REQUIEM IN FOUR ACTS.
The film is structured in four acts, each dealing with a different aspect of the events that preceded and followed Katrina’s catastrophic passage through New Orleans.
