"The first documentary by New Orleans resident and longtime "mockumentarian" Harry Shearer, the Big Uneasy follows three remarkable people -- the leaders of two scientific investigation teams, and one whistleblower -- as they reveal the true story of why the city flooded, why it could happen again, and why other U.S. cities are at risk. It's the "news" the mainstream news media missed; an inside look at a disaster that could have been prevented from the people who were there."--Container.
