Last Call For The Bayou ” in commemoration of World Environment Day.
Filmmaker: Dominic Gill, Nadia Gill
Runtime: 55 min
Synopsis: Last Call For The Bayou is a 5 part digital mini-series that looks at what it is like to confront the reality of climate change today. The Mississippi Delta is the fastest disappearing land on the planet, presently. It is losing a football field an hour of land either through subsidence, traumatic loss via storms, wetland erosion or sea level rise. There are many factors which contribute to the loss almost all of which are the result of societal decisions. Whether it is the oil and gas extraction, the over engineering of our greatest river, or our total carbon output — Louisiana’s wetlands are the canary in a coal mine for the land loss that will be experienced in coastal communities world wide.
