Filmmaker Spike Lee said he want to find out what has happened to south Mississippians since Hurricane Katrina made landfall on Aug. 29, 2005.

Lee was in Gulfport and surrounding cities Wednesday, filming a follow-up to his 2006 Katrina documentary, "When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts."

The new film, "If God is Willing and the Creek Don't Rise," will focus on the progress and failures in education, housing and population relocation, and will spotlight the spirit of south Mississippi residents.

The documentary also will feature recovery updates and personal stories from residents in New Orleans and Houston.

Lee told The Sun Herald there is no script; he and his crews go where the interviews lead.
