London, June 21 (IANS) Acclaimed US filmmaker Spike Lee is considering revisiting the areas devastated by hurricane Katrina to do a follow up to his documentary “When the Levees Broke - A Requiem in Four Acts”. Lee had won three Emmys for the movie that highlighted the effects of the tragedy on the city of New Orleans, Louisiana. Contactmusic.com reports that Lee believes the tragedy is still there and wants to focus on the way people living in those areas feel today.

He said: “I’m going to go back, not just to New Orleans but to other areas affected because it’s not over. What the press is not really talking about is the mental state - suicide, self-medication. It’s horrible.”
