My Louisiana Love
Sharon Linezo Hong
This is a profound story of love, loss and life in the Louisiana wetlands. What begins as a Houma woman`s journey to her family`s ancestral home becomes much more when she discovers her beloved Louisiana is being destroyed and altered by oil and gas industries. Hurricane Katrina`s force only adds to the catastrophe. A rich vein of strength, resilience and hope pulsates through this film and is embodied in the hope of the Indigenous Houma people. Matine, an elder, is the epitome of such strength, tenacity and perseverance.
