Harold Moss, Founder/Creative Director of FlickerLab, the New York-based development, design and animation studio, served as Consulting Producer on the feature-length documentary, “Trouble The Water,� produced and directed by Tia Lessin and Carl Deal of Elsewhere Films (Brooklyn, NY). The 95-minute feature won the Grand Jury Prize for Documentary at this year’s 2008 Sundance Film Festival and will screen at the 37th MoMA/Lincoln Center New Directors/New Films Festival. “Trouble the Water� will be shown at MoMA on Thursday, April 3rd at 6:15 PM and at The Walter Reed Theater on Sunday, April 6th at 4:30PM. Two weeks after Katrina made landfall, New York filmmakers Tia Lessin and Carl Deal flew to Louisiana to make a film about soldiers returning from Iraq who were now homeless. But the National Guard closed off access. Just when the filmmakers were ready to disband their crew, Kim and Scott Roberts, streetwise and indomitable, introduced themselves. Kim had bought a camcorder the day before the hurricane, and using it for the first time, she captured the devastation and its pathetic aftermath, including the selfless rescue of neighbors and the appalling failure of government. The strong center of “Trouble The Water�, though, are the Roberts themselves who, says Deal, "survived all the storms of their lives not because they were lucky, but because they had intelligence, guts, and the kind of hope that is based in will rather than experience." (description from New Directors/New Films catalogue.) Harold Moss first worked with Lessin and Deal when he and his FlickerLab team animated the three-minute cartoon, “A Brief History of the USA,� in Michael Moore's Academy Award winning, “Bowling for Columbine� and again when they created graphic design and effects for Moore’s Palme d’Or winner, “Fahrenheit 9/11.� "My real title should have been 'Extremely Enthusiastic Friend.' I knew what an important film they had in their hands and I just made myself available however I could to help make it happen. Being involved with this incredible film was a real thrill. Telling stories that matter and that make a difference -- that's why I got into this business in the first place and “Trouble the Water" exemplifies both things brilliantly. I still cry my eyes out at every screening I see, and leave more determined to be part of bringing about change," explained Moss. Credits for “Trouble the Water,� a Louverture Films presentation of an Elsewhere Films Production, include Directors/Producers Tia Lessin and Carl Deal; Executive Producers Danny Glover, Joslyn Barnes, Todd Olson and David Alcaro; Editor and Co-Producer T. Woody Richman; Cinematographers: PJ Raval and Kimberly Rivers Roberts; Additional editing Mary Lampson; Additional camera Nadia Hallgren; Co-Producer Amir Bar Lev; Associate Producer Maya Sanbar; Consulting Producer Harold Moss; Composers "Davidge/Del Naja"; and the music of Dr. John, Mary Mary, Citizen Cope, John Lee Hooker, and the Free Agents Brass Band and introducing Black Kold Madina (AKA Kimberly Rivers Roberts).
