Nominated for an Academy Award® for best feature documentary and winner of the Sundance Grand Jury Prize in 2008, TROUBLE THE WATER takes you inside Hurricane Katrina in a way never before seen on screen. It’s a redemptive tale of two self-described street hustlers who become heroes: two unforgettable people who survive the storm and then seize a chance for a new beginning.
Before the film begins, the audience will enjoy the beauty of Sierra County as seen through the eyes of local photographers in a slide show presentation from Sierra County Chamber of Commerce. This presentation was part of the Sierra County Exhibit at the 2011 California State Fair.
Audience members, who would like to make an evening of the event, will be pleased to know that Feather’s La Cocina de Oro in Downieville will be open for dinner before the show!
This program is part of both the Downieville Library’s Community Read events and the Sierra County Arts Council’s “Movie Nights” series with funding from the Bill Graham Foundation and the Friends of the Downieville Library. The Sierra County Arts Council is a local partner of the California Arts Council.
Show time is Friday, March 30, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. Suggested donation $5.00.
