Six months after Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans, producer June Cross came across 82-year-old Herbert Gettridge working alone on his home in the Lower Ninth Ward, a neighborhood devastated when the levees broke in August 2005. Over the next two years, Cross would document the story of the extended Gettridge clan, an African-American family with deep roots in New Orleans, as they struggled to rebuild their homes and their lives.

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: The Old Man and the Storm DVD:

A riveting and disturbing documentary. Perhaps most disturbing is how the millions that congress appropriated to help Katrina victims mostly evaporated. More disturbing because the same thing seems to have happened more recently to the money intended for folks through the HOPE program, to assist homeowners who got loans they couldn't afford.

It isn't enough for Congress to simply pass laws; there needs to be much more thought about the exact sequence of actions involved in implementation of tasks the money is supposed to make happen.

Much more can be said about different aspects of this film. Each person will come away with something different.

This film should definitely be sent to President Obama. We can't afford to repeat this disaster in our attempts to help out sinking homeowners.
