A documentary on the effect of fishing the Nile perch in Tanzania's Lake Victoria. The predatory fish, which has wiped out the native species, is sold in European supermarkets, while starving Tanzanian families have to make do with the leftovers.
Elizabeth 'Eliza' Maganga Nsese,
Raphael Tukiko Wagara,
The water is steady rising in the attic ma'am and I'm gonna drown in the attic.
Can you break a hole in the attic?
I tried. I broke a chair for it. I cannot pry this wood off this attic ma'am.
The police are not coming out until the weather conditions get better.
So I'm gonna die.
I can't get out.

That this could happen in America is a crime of such a magnitude that no words coming from the Bush administration could ever erase the shame. An amateur rented a camera and her video is supplemented by profession work in this Oscar nominated and Sundance award winning film.
The fact that we had rapid response to the storms that hit Texas afterwards does not negate what happened in Louisiana. This short film brings home the crime that was committed upon this city and it's residents.
Navy personnel aiming M-16s at a crowd of survivors just looking for a warm and dry place to sleep is indicative of the lack of care the government displayed in the aftermath of Katrina. "Get off our property or we're gonna start shooting." Excellent film about some people got their lives together on their own.
