I am SO looking forward to Spike's new film!
One of my favorite all time dudes - Spike has made a documentary on Katrina.







When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts

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. Acts I and II premiere Monday, August 21 at 9pm (ET/PT), followed by Acts III and IV on Tuesday, August 22 at 9pm. All four acts will be seen Tuesday, Aug. 29 (8:00 p.m.-midnight), the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Read more.

11. Yeah, YouTube only allows 10 minute clips...
Unless the uploader has a director acocunt. So unless Spike is a big YouTube fan, that might not work, haha.

3. Me too......
I'm so glad he has taken this on. I was beginning to fear that the events of Katrina will get lost in the daily deluge of Bushco disasters.

4. I want to see it but
I don't have cable. :-(
I wonder if it'll be available online?
I saw him in an interview either last night or this morning.
It looks and sounds like it'll be really good!
