THE BIG UNEASY

Sunday, July 24 at 7pm
In Person: Filmmaker and Simpsons star Harry Shearer

Members $9 / Public $13
Includes Film,Discussion and Reception

Almost five years ago, a disaster struck New Orleans. The media said it was a natural disaster
primarily affecting poor black people. On both counts, the media was wrong. In his featurelength
documentary The Big Uneasy, humorist and New Orleans resident Harry Shearer gets the
inside story of a disaster that could have been prevented from the people who were there. As we
approach the fifth anniversary of the flooding of New Orleans, Shearer speaks to the investigators
who poked through the muck as the water receded and a whistle-blower from the Army Corps of
Engineers, revealing that some of the same flawed methods responsible for the levee failure during
Katrina are being used to rebuild the system expected to protect the new New Orleans from future
peril. In short segments hosted by John Goodman, Shearer speaks candidly with local residents
about life in New Orleans. Together, they explore the questions that Americans outside of the Gulf region have been pondering in the
five years since Katrina: Why would people choose to live below sea level? Why is it important to rebuild New Orleans? The Big Uneasy
is laced with computer imagery that takes you inside the structures that failed so catastrophically, and boasts never-before-seen video of the
moments when New Orleans began to flood and the painstaking investigations that followed. The Big Uneasy marks the beginning of the
end of five years of ignorance about what happened to one of our nation's most treasured cities - and serves as a stark reminder that the same
agency that failed to protect New Orleans still exists in other cities across America. USA, 2007, 95 min.; Director: Harry Shearer
