Chris Jay writes from Robinson Film Center, "I am doing anything I can to spread the word about a very special guest appearance we have just scheduled. Kim and Scott Roberts, subjects of the Hurricane Katrina documentary “Trouble the Water” (which won the Grand Jury Prize at this year’s Sundance Film Festival) will be visiting The Robinson Film Center this Saturday, November 8, to discuss the film with patrons and participate in question-and-answer sessions following our 4:30 PM and 7:00 PM screenings of the film. Kim and Scott are residents of New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward, and were trapped in their home during the storm. Kim captured the experience of the storm on her hand-held video camera, and also documented their efforts to rescue friends and neighbors, and later their journey out of New Orleans. It’s an amazing film, and Kim and Scott are really interesting to speak with about their lives before, during, and after the storm."

Jay adds, "Admission to the Q&A/discussions with Kim and Scott is free, though you do have to purchase a ticket to see the film. I expect the discussions to take place around 6:00 Pm and 7:30 PM."
