Hurricane on the Bayou was a compelling documentary shown at an IMAX theatre in New Orleans, 10 July 2008
Author: tavm from Baton Rouge, La.

I just came from the Entergy IMAX Theatre in New Orleans and watched this documentary directed by Greg MacGillivray. While it does indeed depict Hurricane Katrina in both actual footage and some recreations, the crux of the film deals with the wetlands and how some man-made renovations may have contributed to some of their erosion over the years. MacGillivray provides some beautiful footage of many of these wetlands as we get a literally moving point-of-view shot through the various trees. Glen Pitre, the Louisiana filmmaker responsible for Belizaire the Cajun and The Scoundrel's Wife (a.k.a. The Home Front), wrote the narration spoken by Meryl Streep. There are also comments spread throughout by musicians Tab Benoit and fiddle prodigy Amanda Shaw about their experiences before and after the fateful hurricane. They also provided a wonderful singing duet about an alligator and its offspring as footage of those animals were showing. We also see Ms. Shaw accompany legendary producer and pianist Allen Toussaint and singer Marva Wright for a spirited song at the end. At 45 minutes, Hurricane on the Bayou shows how New Orleans, despite its disastrous setback 3 years ago, keeps trying to lift its spirits up with great music and a good party atmosphere for all. So on that note, I say Let the Good Times Roll! P.S. I recognized one of the background songs as Dr. John's "Such a Night".
