In their quest for the truth, documentary filmmakers are typically faced with various obstacles, particularly when big corporations and potential wrongdoing are part of the picture. Good thing Spike Lee is no stranger to cinematic controversy!

Having captured the intersection of politics and race in post-Katrina New Orleans with his HBO documentary When The Levees Broke, Lee is following up with a new 4-hour film, If God Is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise.

Premiering on HBO in two parts, the documentary chronicles the Big Easy’s challenges and rebirth while pursuing economic growth, housing restoration and other social issues against the backdrop of the momentous 2010 Super Bowl victory and the cataclysmic Gulf oil spill.

Not surprisingly, BP did not cooperate with the Oscar nominated director – perhaps they caught wind of his request for President Obama to “go off” on them and demand financial compensation? In all likelihood, their unwillingness to talk probably stems from the fact that his footage captures the devastation in full Technicolor – something BP has successfully shrouded from the media.
