Westerville, OH—The Otterbein University film series Films Without Borders will host a screening of director Spike Lee’s documentary If God is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise
(2010) at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 26, in room 429 of Roush Hall, 27 S. Grove St. The screening is free and open to the public, with refreshments available for purchase. If God is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise
is the 2010 follow-up to Spike Lee’s award-winning documentary, When the Levees Broke
(2006), an astonishing record of the cataclysmic effects of Hurricane Katrina on the city of New Orleans. In If God is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise
, Lee returns to New Orleans to see how the ambitious plans to reinvent the Crescent City were playing out. He finds a patchwork of hope and heartache just as a new disaster unfolds.
