STEP 2: As you watch, list what you see in the film in the order that you see it. What do we see first? What do we see next?

This list will give a sense of what happens in the film and when, but it will also give you an index of the evidence that Spike Lee uses to make his argument about what Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath reveal about the United States in the 21st century.
