Southern Perspectives * USA * 60 min

Post show Q&A with Jonathan Evans, Director
Director: Jonathan Evans
Producers: Ryan H. Martin, and Caroline Taylor
Sponsored by: Ava & Cordell Haymon

NOLA based professor Evans explores the problem of coastal land loss in Southern Louisiana with honesty, directness, and urgency. The film features interviews with activists, professors, and community leaders who demonstrate how we got here and where we are going. The effects of sea rise and erosion in the wetlands touch down on numerous industries and influence the lives of residents throughout the Delta, including New Orleans. Solutions have been placed on the table, but they are underfunded, and civic engagement on a small scale appears to be the only route to sustainability on a larger one. But even that might be wishful thinking. Jury Prize, Best Louisiana Feature, New Orleans FF.
