The first documentary by New Orleans resident and longtime "mockumentarian" Harry Shearer (This Is Spinal Tap; A Mighty Wind), The Big Uneasy follows three remarkable people - the leaders of two scientific investigation teams, and one whistle-blower - as they reveal the true story of why the city flooded, why it could happen again, and why other U.S. cities are at risk. It's the "news" the mainstream news media missed; an inside look at a disaster that could have been prevented from the people who were there. Critics have called it "A gripping, persuasive film. Essential Viewing" (The Los Angeles Times), "Poignant...indispensable" (The New York Times) and "A scathing indictment...an airtight case." (Village Voice).
Includes Bonus Features:
- Feature-Length Commentary by Director Harry Shearer
- Making The Big Uneasy Easy (Behind The Scenes)
- Post-Screening Q&A
- Harry Shearer's National Press Club Speech
