Couple's film traces recovery from Hurricane Katrina


WALLA WALLA — “Trouble the Water,” a tale-of-survival documentary, will be screened at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in Hunter Conservatory’s Kimball Theater, Whitman College campus, 345 Boyer Ave.

Made refugees in their own city the moment the levees broke in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina, Kimberly and Scott Roberts documented their struggle against forces of nature, man and government as they attempted to rebuild their lives.

Kimberly Rivers Roberts is a musician and filmmaker who was living in New Orleans with husband, Scott, when Katrina struck.

She was one of the film’s cinematographers.

Directed by Carl Deal and Tia Lessin and executive produced by Danny Glover, Josyln Barnes, David Alcaro and Todd Olson, the film won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. Admission is free.
