Audience Reviews for Desert Bayou
What an amazing story being documented here. Worth it just to see the contrast of sincere/sensitive Salt Lake City Mayor & snarky/phony Utah Governor - esp. in the bonus footage. Incredible indictment of racial profiling in the US & of the Mormon & militaries control in this part of the country. A humbling account of how vulnerable the New Orleans citizens were when they got on planes to get out of their destroyed city.
Ive seen alot of documentaries on Hurricane Katrina but this was the only 1 I found truly interesting
