REFUGE is a portrait of Phan, a Cambodian fisherman who escaped the Khmer Rouge Killing Fields as a child to resettle along the coast in Buras, Louisiana. Today, Phan and his community are faced with the possibility of becoming refugees again, this time from coastal erosion, rising sea levels, and state restoration programs that struggle to engage with affected communities. REFUGE is screening at the New Orleans Film Festival at the Prytania Theater on October 14th at 5 PM.
KEEPERS OF THE MOUND is a short documentary film about a Native American family who cares for one of the many ancient earthen mounds threatened by the rapid disintegration of the Louisiana coastline. With the threat of land loss looming and limited resources available for coastal restoration and protection, KEEPERS OF THE MOUND highlights indigenous communities’ fight to be considered in the cost-benefit-ratio of coastal protection. KEEPERS OF THE MOUND is screening at the New Orleans Film Festival at the Advocate Headquarters, 840 St. Charles Avenue, October 18th at 8 PM.
