"The first documentary by New Orleans resident and longtime 'mockumentarian' Harry Shearer, the Big Uneasy follows three remarkable people -- the leaders of two scientific investigation teams, and one whistleblower -- 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"--Container.

The Army Corps of Engineers is a remarkable organization: by order of Congress, it first does shoddy work that causes disasters like the New Orleans flooding, then gets even more money to repeat the same mistakes that caused the first disaster, setting up another disaster in the future.

And where was the Press while all this was going on? Be sure to watch the National Press Club address, in the "Extras" section of the DVD.
