Storyline

On August 29, 2005, Rockey Vaccarella rode out Hurricane Katrina on his roof by holding on to a rope for 4 hours. Rockey and his family lost everything but he refused to give up. Nearly one year after surviving the worst natural disaster in the history of America, Rockey set out on a mission to deliver a message to the President of the United States. Even when most people thought he was crazy, Rockey hooked up his FEMA trailer and journeyed from Louisiana to the White House. By the time he arrived in the nation's capitol, Rockey had captured the attention of America and much of the world. FORGOTTEN ON THE BAYOU is the true story of an unforgettable man who believes that anything is possible. Written by Steven Scaffidi

This Film is a Winner!
2 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Newport Beach Film Festival and it was awesome. The audience was really into it and it's no surprise that the film won the Humanitarian Vision Award. What makes the film stand out to me is the central character "Rockey". This guy is truly amazing. He's a natural in front of the camera and I couldn't wait to see what he was going to do next. The film got a tremendous response from the big crowd too. Everyone laughed and there were times that we wanted to cry but in the end everyone cheered for this man who refuses to take no for an answer. I saw Rockey's journey to the White House on the news last year and I had no idea what he and the crew went through to get all the way to the President of the United States. It was absolutely not an inside job that's for sure. You will be pleasantly surprised by this film. The story will have you on the edge of your seat the entire way as you cheer Rockey on. Hats off to Director Steven Scaffidi for an amazing film!
