Editorial Reviews

Hurricane Katrina may well be the most exhaustively chronicled natural disaster in history. Over the course of 72 hours, a cataclysmic storm became a catastrophic flood, which in turn became an apocalyptic human tragedy. All the while, amateur videographers, news crews, government agencies, tourists, storm chasers, and countless others were recording the sights and sounds of the unfolding chaos.  Weaving together more than a hundred of these sources, Witness: Katrina reconstructs Hurricane Katrina as it happened, entirely through the eyes of those who experienced it. From Biloxi to Bay St. Louis, from Slidell to the Superdome, this 90-minute special captures the storm and its aftermath in all its epic human complexity - raw images of fear, grief, and anger, side by side with unforgettable moments of humor, grace, and joy. Timed to coincide with the fifth anniversary of the storm, Witness: Katrina is both a riveting documentary and an enduring document - the portrait of a defining moment in American history.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

This product is expected to play back in DVD Video "play only" devices, and may not play in other DVD devices, including recorders and PC drives.

Witness: Katrina reconstructs the storm as it happened, entirely through the eyes of those who experienced it. As an avid follower of NATGEO, magazines and TV; I bought this DVD when I was researching the hurricane. I had seen this on TV in snatches and wanted to own the disc. This moving documentary gives the viewer a poignant look into the places and people involved in such a tragic natural disaster. The up close professional and personal video accounts helps one imagine and even step into the lives and locations that Katrina still continues to dramatically affect. For the NATGEO collector, this is one to have and take notes from.

...this production consists largely of home video footage shot with cell phones and camcorders, complete with running narration from the "cameramen" - mainly folks who ignored the evacuation orders and stayed behind to watch. Some of this commentary is interesting, but much of it is just inane.

It is shocking to find National Geographic producing glop of this kind.

It was quite informative but the language on part of it caused me not to show the class. Also the inappropriate drinking and bar scene I found disturbing. Therefore not useful for a classroom setting.
