SOLA - Film by Jon Bowermaster
In SoLa, Louisiana Water Stories, we meet some of the most unique individuals working on each of the myriad of environmental issues facing South Louisiana, giving voice and humanity to these man-made messes. The one-hour documentary captures what is most at risk environmentally as we continue to take the Gulf coast state for granted, while simultaneously reminding us of the culture that binds the region.
