Trouble the Water At The Yuba Theatre March 30, 2012

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!

  • Californians will once again have the opportunity to support the California Arts Council and its arts programs for children through their state individual tax refund. Sept. 2013, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. signed Senate Bill 571 (Senator Carol Liu, La Canada Flintridge), returning the arts to the voluntary contribution portion of California tax return forms through the new "Keep Arts in Schools Fund." Donations are tax deductible and support Arts Council programs throughout the state.
