Buffalo Creek Revisited - Web Stream

Filmed ten years after the flood, Buffalo Creek Revisited looks at the second disaster on Buffalo Creek in which the survivors' efforts to rebuild the communities shattered by the flood are thwarted by government insensitivity and a century old pattern of corporate control of the region's land and resources. Through the statements of survivors, planners, politicians, psychologists, and community activists, the film explores the psychology of disaster, the value of community, and the paradox of a poor people living in a rich land.
