Spike Lee screens Katrina film

Spike Lee screened portions of his follow-up documentary about Hurricane Katrina in front of a big crowd in New Orleans.

The premiere included hours one and four of the HBO documentary, If God Willing And Da Creek Don't Rise.

The award-winning filmmaker also produced When The Levees Broke: A Requiem In Four Acts, after Katrina struck in August 2005.

In the new movie, Lee returns five years later to see how plans to rebuild New Orleans have played out.

It also details the impact of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill on people who have yet to fully recover from the hurricane.
