Big Easy to Big Empty
On August 22, 2006, reporter Greg Palast and producer Matt Pascarella were charged with criminal violations of the anti-terror laws by the Department of Homeland Security while making Big Easy to Big Empty.
... and there is no doubt, this film is dangerous - to the regime of Washington.
Here is the real story of Hurricane Katrina that you won't get on CNN. You'll follow investigative reporter Greg Palast as he travels to New Orleans to investigate what has happened since Hurricane Katrina devestated the Gulf Coast. On his visit, Palast discovers the population of New Orleans is miniscule, the reconstruction sparse, suicide rates climbing, and that many citizens have not, or even know how to return to the city that care forgot.
Palast takes you inside the offices of the political cronies of the Bush Admin who planned the evacuation - until he's thrown out by perps. You'll get a look inside FEMA's "Guantanamo on Wheels" for Katrina survivors.
