Big Easy to Big Empty: The Untold Story of the Drowning of New Orleans (2007)
28min · Documentary, Short · 5 June 2007
Thousands of New Orleans residents were forced to evacuate when Hurricane Katrina struck in August 2005; filmed a year later, this compelling documentary shows how some of the city's poorest residents were still trying to find their way home. Investigative reporter Greg Palast interviews scores of storm victims, from separated families to people who lost everything, and finds that the common thread is that they all just want to return home.
