Hurricane on the Bayou

**** Hurricane on the Bayou. Documentary.

Directed by: Greg MacGillivray
Starring: Amanda Shaw, Tab Benoit


Or rather Hurrikan ├╝ber Louisiana, since we saw it in German in the IMAX at the Technik Museum in Speyer, so no Meryl Streep narrating.

It shows the effect of Hurricane Katrina through the eyes of young musician Amanda Shaw, and talks a bit about the importance of wetlands, what could have been done to prevent a lot of the devastation, and what can be done to help the wetlands recover.

Despite its short length, I was in tears several times, and it made me think of my friends who were directly affected. (waves "hi" to Becky & Julia)

Gorgeous photography, of course, which is what you expect in an IMAX movie.
