Repeats every day until Fri Feb 29 2008.

Lee's eloquently enraged look at New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina is epic in scope and intimate in detail. Originally produced as a miniseries for HBO, the project went on to win three prime-time Emmy Awards. As Lee himself says, When the Levees Broke portrays "the struggle for New Orleans by focusing on the profound loss, as well as the indomitable spirit of New Orleaneans."
