Five years after Hurricane Katrina a new feature-length documentary “The Big Uneasy” is taking a look at the true cause of the disaster. Humorist and New Orleans resident Harry Shearer speaks to an Army Corp of Engineers whistleblower who reveals that “some of the same flawed methods responsible for the levee failure during Katrina are being used to rebuild the system expected to protect the new New Orleans from future peril.” Mr. Shearer has stated that his documentary showcases the negative consequences for those who had the courage to tell the truth.
