Trouble the Water


An aspiring rap artist and her streetwise husband show what survival is all about when they are trapped in New Orleans by deadly floodwaters and then seize a chance for a new beginning. The Audience Engagement grant will support the filmmakers as they move beyond their theatrical and DVD release to a national youth engagement campaign in partnership with music industry creative executives and national and New Orleans based recording artists.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
