Filming the Bayou

My Louisiana Love, an incredibly compelling documentary edited and co-produced by FAV faculty member Julie Mallozzi, will be aired on PBS World as part of the America ReFramed series.

The film is not to be missed. It tells the story of a young Native American woman named Monique Verdin who attempts to reunite with her family – but upon returning home to Southeast Louisiana, she finds that a “cycle of manmade environmental crises” is literally causing the land to sink.

“Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil leak are just the latest rounds in this century-old cycle that is forcing Monique’s clan to adapt in new ways,” write the directors.

In addition to PBS, the film will be screened in locations around the world, including the National Museum of the American Indian in New York City. 

See this WGBH Boston web video to watch the film in its entirety.
