Press

"TROUBLE THE WATER, built around 15 minutes of eye-of-the-storm video shot by then 24-year-old Kimberly Rivers Roberts will stand as the definitive experiential chronicle of the catastrophe."

- Rob Nelson, Film Comment

"[A] stirring documentary on Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath....With her buoyant, naturally dramatic personality, bold, nervy Kim has the kind of intensely charismatic spirit documentary directors dream about."

- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
