USA: corporate sponsors castrate film on hurricane Katrina

This video from the USA is called Roundtable Discussion with Hurricane Katrina Survivors 1.

From the Washington Post in the USA:

Rose-Colored Lens

In Louisiana, Environmental Destruction Never Looked So Pretty

By Philip Kennicott …

A new Imax film about the devastation wreaked by Hurricane Katrina seems a bit incomplete, as it somehow manages not to say a word about the political and societal dysfunction that have made Katrina a lasting blot on the American landscape. …

Why does a film that seems so insistent on decrying the loss of wetlands end with little more than an anodyne lament and some empty hope?

Roll the credits: The film was made with money contributed by Chevron. And Dow Chemical. And Dominion Exploration and Production, a major power company.
