US film director Spike Lee has said he will return to New Orleans to film a follow-up to his documentary about the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Lee received a Peabody award for excellence in electronic media
"The story is not over," he said. "It's still something that's evolving and we want to keep on top of it."
Lee was speaking to reporters after picking up a Peabody broadcasting award for the original documentary, When The Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts.
The director previously said he was planning a drama about the disaster.
When The Levees Broke was one of 35 winners at the 66th annual Peabody awards, which recognise excellence in electronic media.
Judges called the four-hour documentary "a heartrending document and a profound work of art".
It featured footage which American news networks were unable to show, including shots of bloated bodies floating in the floodwaters near New Orleans.
Some of Lee's interview subjects also asked if they could curse on film; he said it proved essential to conveying the anger of the event.
The director said at the awards he remained friends with many of the people featured in the film.
"Most of them are still up the creek without a paddle, abandoned by their local, state and federal governments.
"We can't forget about them."
