BURN ON THE BAYOU
2008, 56 min, USA, Dir: Matt Leonard

At the end of August 2005, Hurricane Katrina slammed into the Louisiana and Mississippi coasts devastating over 90,000 square miles. Mississippi officials calculated that 90% of the structures within one half mile of the coastline were completely destroyed. Two thousand miles away, a group of volunteers emerged from an event in the Nevada desert: Burning Man. The unlikely group that converged in Biloxi and Pearlington, Mississippi had in common the shared experience of collaborating and building in harsh environments and the strongly held belief that when people need help, you help them first, and ask questions later. BURN ON THE BAYOU follows the group of volunteers over the seven months of work following the storm, and it features interviews with both volunteers and residents.
