Guests were welcomed on the red carpet as they walked inside the French Quarter Film House for a “Red Carpet Gala” hosted by director Victoria Greene and the New Orleans Video Access Center to support “Forgotten Bayou: Life on the Sinkhole,” a documentary film about the Bayou Corne community.
Guests were treated to hors d’oeuvres prepared by the chefs at Mimi’s in the Marigny and foods and wines from restaurants throughout the area.
Greene presented a never before seen clip from the film and introduced former Bayou Corne homeowner Mona Dugas. Guests were treated to Dugas performing her own music in Cajun French. Many Bayou Corne homeowners were present along with friends and family of the filmmakers.
The film will be completed this year.
