Robert J. Flaherty’s last masterpiece is a visually stunning, lyrical tribute to a land and its people. Known as the ‘Father of the Documentary,’ Flaherty’s poetic vision of nature and the human spirit fills every frame of this amazing film. Through the eyes of a young Cajun boy living on the Bayou, Flaherty tells a story of disruption and change when an oil rig brings industry into his pristine world. Listed on the National Film Registry as a national treasure, Louisiana Story has finally been restored to its original glory.
