When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts
Spike Lee, 2006
Feb 1, 2008–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."

Screenings run continuously seven days a week, the same hours as our ticket office (Mon-Wed: 9 AM-6 PM; Thu-Fri: 9 AM-8 PM; Sat: 10 AM-8 PM; Sun: 11 AM-6 PM). The Box is located just across from the Wexner Center Store.
