The camerawork is shaky, but the story keeps viewers pinned to their seats. The chronology of the documentary adds to the feeling of foreboding doom. In its earliest scenes, we see the first time filmmaker with her husband Scott prepare for the worst and issue warnings to their poor and infirm neighbors. Trouble the Water captures the devastation of inevitable natural disaster and the inexplicability of discrimination and death post-Katrina, and the images should be seared into every voters brain come November 4. Trouble the Water could have been another depressing montage of bloated bodies and suffering Superdome refugees, but the Robertss righteous determination elevates this into a force to be witnessed. Do just that at 4 p.m. today at the Lake Worth Playhouse (713 Lake Ave., Lake Worth). Tickets cost $6. Call 561-586-6410, or visit lakeworthplayhouse.org.
