Beginning the OjaiDocs’ Summer Documentary Film Series is Trouble the Water, winner of the 2008 Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival. The film tells the story of an aspiring rap artist and her streetwise husband, trapped in New Orleans by deadly floodwaters, who survive the storm and then seize a chance for a new beginning. It’s a redemptive tale of street hustlers-turned-heroes that takes you inside Hurricane Katrina in a way never before seen on screen. Filmmakers Carl Deal and Tia Lessin will be on hand for a Q&A following the screening on Saturday, August 9, at 4:30 p.m. at the Ojai Playhouse (145 E. Ojai Ave.). Tickets are $7-$10. Call 640-3755 or visit ojaidocs.org for more info.
