HBO Documentary - Katrina 5yrs Later

The Follow-up of Spike Lee's award winning documentary "When The Levees Broke" will premiere on HBO on August 23-24.

According to the Times Picayune: The new documentary, titled “If God is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise,” will premiere on HBO in two parts on August 23 and 24. The first and fourth hours of the film, which revisits many of the people viewers met in “Levees,” will be screened at the New Orleans event. Other segments recount the New Orleans Saints’ Super Bowl victory, examine efforts to overhaul New Orleans’ public housing and public schools, crime, the Make It Right Foundation’s work in the Lower 9th Ward and Mississippi Gulf Coast recovery.

Most of the entire fourth hour of the film is dedicated to the BP oil spill and its aftermath.
