On August 22, 2005, Kimberly Rivers Roberts was just an ordinary citizen of New Orleans’ Ninth Ward. Hustling, trying to get by, she had just bought a video camera off the street for $20 and was excited to film her friends and neighborhood. A week later, everything had changed. The nation’s largest natural disaster in history, Hurricane Katrina, hit New Orleans, and all Kim could do was save her friends and family—and capture the whole thing on video tape.
Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary and Winner of Sundance’s Grand Jury Prize, Trouble the Water is the powerful film by filmmakers Carl Deal and Tia Lessin (producers of Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine) that reveals both the horror of the storm and the even greater challenges of its aftermath. For Kim and her husband Scott, as well as the other residents of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast region, the struggle to make it through was not always a simple success story. But in this inspiring and redemptive film emerges a tale of self-described street hustlers who become heroes—two unforgettable people who survive the storm and then seize a chance for a new beginning.
