Harry Shearer’s “The Big Uneasy” at the Rialto Cinemas Elmwood (July 8th – July 14th)

“The Big Uneasy” is the first documentary by long-time “mockumentarian” Harry Shearer (of Spinal Tap and The Simpsons). The film follows three remarkable people–the leaders of two scientific investigation teams, and one whistleblower–as they reveal the true story of why New Orleans flooded, and why it could happen in other cities across America.

Shearer speaks to the tireless investigators and experts who poked through the muck as the water receded, and uncovers a courageous whistle-blower from the Army Corps of Engineers. His dogged pursuit of facts reveals that some of the same flawed methods responsible for levee failure during Hurricane Katrina are being used to rebuild the system expected to protect the “new” New Orleans from future peril.
