Every time I write a post about New Orleans, I find it hard to believe that “rebuilding” is still  a major focus for the region. Here we are, more than three years later, and there are still many people — scratch that, neighborhoods — that still have not been restored to community status. It’s 2008 in the United States of America and that’s the reality of our infrastructure response to disaster? Incredible.

Indeed, rebuilding is still plodding along, and the proper way — the green, sustainable developments — are largely being sprearheaded by private, charitable organizations; like Brad Pitt’s Make It Right NOLA foundation or Global Green’s Holy Cross project.

On the season finale of the Sundance Channel’s ICONOCLASTS, Cameron Diaz joins Cameron Sinclair (co-founder of Architecture for Humanity, the global organization that seeks sustainable architectural solutions to humanitarian crisis and communities in need) on a journey to New Orleans to witness the enduring environmental and human impact of Hurricane Katrina.

Tune in tonight at 10PM — for a preview, check out a few clips after the jump.
