SEEKING PERSONAL HOME FOOTAGE: We are looking for home movie footage of your personal experiences with Hurricane Katrina (before, during, immediately after, hurricane parties, prepping for the storm, etc). If you have personal footage or any other material which you think could be of interest, we want to hear from you. Please get in touch by emailing us at


This five-part premium series tells the definitive story of Hurricane Katrina from two decades of hindsight, going beyond the story we think we know to reveal the determination and self-reliance of the communities abandoned and left to defend themselves. Told through archival footage and the voices of those who experienced the storm, the series serves both as a tale of hope and resilience and a warning that while the consequences of humankind’s interventions in the environment may affect us all, they don’t affect us all equally.
