Hurricane Katrina Anniversary Screening: Come Hell or High Water
Aug 5, 2015

Special screening & discussion marking the 10th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

Come Hell or High Water: The Battle for Turkey Creek follows the painful but inspiring journey of Derrick Evans, a Boston teacher who moves home to coastal Mississippi when the graves of his ancestors are bulldozed to make way for the sprawling city of Gulfport. Over the course of a decade, Derrick and his neighbors stand up to powerful corporate interests and politicians and face ordeals that include Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil disaster in their struggle for self-determination and environmental justice.

Join us for this free screening and conversation about how this story of environmental disaster and grassroots leadership speaks to challenges faced by Bay Area communities, and hopes for the future. After the film, join a conversation with filmmaker Leah Mahan, moderator Milton Reynolds of Facing History and Ourselves, and young people engaged with Literacy for Environmental Justice as Eco-stewards of Bayview Hunters Point.

This is a free event, seating is limited.

Sponsored by Literacy for Environmental Justice. Co-Sponsored by EcoCenter at Heron's Head Park and SF Green Film Festival.
