Recently short-listed for the Academy Award for Best Feature Documentary,
Trouble the Water opens Wednesday at The Movies on Exchange at 10 Exchange
Street in Portland.
Directed and produced by Fahrenheit 9/11 producers Tia Lessin and Carl Deal,
and executive produced by Danny Glover, the film won the Grand Jury Prize at
the Sundance Film Festival. The directors will be present for a Q & A after
the 5 and 9 p.m. screenings on Friday, November 28th.
Here's what critics are saying:
"...one of the best American documentaries in recent memory."-- Manohla
Dargis, The New York Times
"...an endlessly moving, artlessly magnificent tribute to people the
government didn't think worth saving." --Richard Corliss, TIME
"...essential, unique viewing: a stunning experience." --Lisa Schwarzbaum,
"Indelible! Will pin you to your seat!" - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.
It is an uplifting story about one family's survival of the flooding of New
Orleans after Katrina, and their journey into a new life. A true story about
navigating through difficult times, Trouble the Water takes on particular
meaning and significance as we enter into this holiday season.
