Recent Henry exhibitor and multi-talented Harry Shearer is continuing to show his work with the Northwest Film Forum. His recent film, The Big Uneasy, will premiere this Friday, July 8th, with the director himself in attendance!
Natural disasters have a way of repeating themselves. Such is the case with the recent tsunami in Japan, and it could be the case for New Orleans, which almost five years ago was struck by Hurricane Katrina. In his feature–length documentary, comedian and New Orleans resident Harry Shearer gets the inside story of a disaster that could have been prevented. Shearer speaks to investigators and whistle–blowers, revealing that some of the same flawed methods responsible for the levee failure during Katrina are being used to rebuild the system to protect from future peril.
Harry Shearer became acquainted with the Henry last winter with his show Harry Shearer: The Silent Echo Chamber. This exhibition brought together several “found” videos compiled by the unexpected artist.
