Documentary Channel To Air Movie About Louisiana

“All Over But to Cry”, a documentary about Hurricane Audrey, will be featured on The Documentary Channel on June 27 at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m.  The date marks 54 years since Hurricane Audrey smashed into the Cajun communities of Southwest Louisiana, bringing a massive tidal wave and leaving more than 500 people dead.

I can remember listening to stories about Hurricane Audrey from my Aunts and Uncles when I was a kid.  I am sure that this Emmy-winning documentary will bring back memories for many in Acadiana and Southwest Louisiana.

A category 4 storm, Hurricane Audrey remains the strongest June hurricane on record.  All Over But to Cry is an intimate and stunning account from survivors who describe clinging to trees and rooftops, floating on a refrigerator through the Gulf, and watching loved ones drown, according to Megan Monsour Hartman, marketing manager Lake Charles/Southwest Louisiana Convention & Visitors Bureau (337 436-9588 or 800 456-7952).

All Over But to Cry will air again on July 11 at 7 p.m. and July 27 at 5:30 p.m.

Hartman explains the origins of the film:  “Jennifer John Block and Jake Springfield spent two years producing the film, which was completed in May 2009. The documentary started as an oral history project for the Lake Charles-based National Hurricane Museum & Science Center, a derivative of the Creole Nature Trail All-American Road.”

She says that “All Over But to Cry” recently won an Emmy award, as well as the 2010 Humanities Documentary Film of the Year from the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities.  The All Over But to Cry DVD is currently on sale in the Lake Charles/Southwest Louisiana Convention & Visitors Bureau gift shop for $20.

Hartman also gave the link to view the trailer on Youtube.
