The Peace and Justice Center of Nevada County is pleased to present Trouble the Water, an unforgettable documentary taking us into the eye of Hurricane Katrina — the storm, the devastation and its aftermath.

Winner at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, this astonishingly powerful documentary is both horrifying and exhilarating. Directed and produced by Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine producers Tia Lessin and Carl Deal, Trouble the Water is more than just a tale of survival, it also captures the abysmal failures of the Federal Emergency Management Agency in handling the devastated New Orleans community.

Trouble the Water shows Friday at 7 p.m. at the Madelyn Helling Library, 980 Helling Way (near the Rood Center) in Nevada City.



Come for the film, and stay for the discussion to follow. $10 suggested donation and free tea and organic popcorn. For more information visit the Peace Center’s website at ncpeace.org, or email to ncpeaceandjustice@gmail.com. “Like” the Peace and Justice Center of Nevada County on Facebook.
