SAN DIEGO (AP) - Spike Lee screened some of his new HBO
documentary that includes a look at the massive BP Gulf oil spill
and says no one from the oil giant is speaking to him.

The director showed about 90 minutes of "If God Is Willing and
Da Creek Don't Rise" at the National Association of Black
Journalists convention in San Diego on Saturday. The film is a
follow-up to "When the Levees Broke" about the devastation of
Hurricane Katrina.

It picks up with the New Orleans Saints' Super Bowl victory and
chronicles the impact of the spill on people who have yet to fully
recover from Katrina.

When asked if BP cooperated he said, "Nobody was speaking to me
from BP." A call to the BP press office wasn't immediately

He also called on President Barack Obama to "bring the hammer"
on BP and make the company pay.
