Shearer Is Here

Harry Shearer, best known for his humorous work on “Saturday Night Live,” “The Simpsons” and This Is Spinal Tap, is getting serious with his latest filmic effort. Shearer wrote and directed the new documentary feature The Big Uneasy. The film profiles the leaders of two scientific investigation teams and one whistleblower from the Army Corps of Engineers, who reveal the true story of how New Orleans flooded in the wake of Katrina and why it could happen again. The film plays April 2 through 6 at Guild Cinema in Nob Hill. Shearer will be in Albuquerque on Sunday, April 3, to introduce the film and to participate in a post-film Q and A. Sounds like a can’t-miss opportunity to chat with a passionate show biz vet.
