Lee To Capture New Orleans Disaster
Director SPIKE LEE has vowed to return to New Orleans for his next project so he can capture the devastation caused by last year's (05) Hurricane Katrina. The MALCOM X film maker is working on a drama examining the lives of residents recovering from the terrible disaster which hit the city last August. The documentary is titled NoLa, after the local slang for New Orleans. Lee says, "It's a show about the city trying to rebuild itself and the people who are trying to put their lives together, "It's our goal to make great cinema for television."
