The Great Invisible airs on Houston Public Media, TV 8, Tuesday, April 21, at 10 p.m. Michael Hagerty talked with its director, Margaret Brown, who grew up along the Alabama coast. She said her interest in making a film about the disaster began when her dad sent her some pictures of the devastation.
