Two videos will be shown. A 10-minute documentary produced by Levees.org with a local film crew in The Netherlands shows how its government has learned to live with water instead of treating water like the enemy. The video explains how the Dutch have made water attractive to its residents by adding value to the land used for retention ponds and canals. A second 8-minute video produced by FoodMusicJustice.com for Levees.org details how 50-year veteran Carol Forsloff took the challenge to read all material relating to the 2005 flooding in metro New Orleans and wrote a thorough account of the important chapter in history.
