(From Levees.org and Sandy Rosenthal)
On the eve of the anniversary of the worst engineering failure in U.S. history, the grassroots group levees.org will release a new short film, The Katrina Myth: The Truth about a Thoroughly Unnatural Disaster. The film, to be debuted on Thursday, Aug. 28, goes after the destructive and unfair myths that are slowing the region's recovery.
Simultaneous with the live premiere in New Orleans, more than 70 individuals in 20 states will host home screenings of the film to bring awareness about the levee situation to the whole country.
The New Orleans Premiere is free and open to the public. Everyone is invited to come out and show their support for the new film, levees.org and justice for New Orleans.
When: Thursday August 28, 2008
Where: Touro Synagogue, 4238 St. Charles Avenue, uptown New Orleans (secure parking at Carondelet and Gen. Pershing)
