Big Easy to Big Empty: The Untold Story of the Drowning of New Orleans 2006 - 57 min.

Director: Greg Palast

On the one year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, investigative reporter Greg Palast uncovers the clandestine political agendas and hushed-up eyewitness reports surrounding the devastation of New Orleans while visiting the city to witness the reconstruction process firsthand. The troubling facts that Palast uncovers during his visit to New Orleans stand in stark contrast to the hopeful spin of the nightly news; not only has the population of the city dwindled, but reconstruction seems to be woefully inadequate and suicide rates are steadily climbing. This is the untold story of New Orleans, conveyed by an independent voice and featuring exclusive footage.
