Spike Lee is back on television with another documentary entitled If God is Willing And Da Creek Don’t Rise. The acclaimed director’s two-part series centers on the rebirth of New Orleans after the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina several years ago. Creek is a follow up to Lee’s 2006 award winning film When the Levees Break: A Requiem in Four Acts but it takes the focus off the damage and puts it on the restoration of the city. Check out the trailer…
