New Orleans residents, who are unable to leave the city as Katrina hits, tackle the devastation of the storm and its aftermath.
Primarily using home-video footage taken by New Orleans resident Kimberley Roberts, Trouble the Water follows the story of her and her neighbours’ struggle for survival. With no means of evacuation, they brave the physical devastation of Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath, as well as the racialised and classed response to the disaster by policy-makers.
Drinks and snacks will be provided with the generous support of the Goldsmiths SU Academic Communities fund.
The Cities on Screen series is an informal, student-led space for sociology students and others to reflect on and discuss issues and ideas related to city life. Curated by Sophie Porter and Emily Ballard, MA Cities and Society.
