Had a chance to watch this film in New Orleans on the imax, but passed on the opportunity, thinking I had seen it all and read it all as pertains to katrina, hurricanes, levees and New Orleans. But after seeing the film now 5 years later, I realize this film wasn't at all like other documentaries on the topic of katrina and the gulf coast. Hurricane on the bayou is beautiful and positive in nature, with little or no mention about the us government, and failures of the safety systems in place. Instead this film is acceptant of the calamity and put together with the intent of promoting stewardship along the gulf coast region of Louisiana. There is a strong spirit of optimism about this film which makes it even more of a joy to watch, while the beauty of New Orleans is showcased through vast panoramic views of the city; before, during and after the levees broke. Having seen plenty of documentaries about katrina I will highly recommend this film as the first to watch, and appreciate the film and film makers for steering clear of finger pointing and blame games, which other documentaries have done so much of. In the end, Hurricane On The Bayou is a true film worthy of 4 stars.
