Ten years ago Hurricane Katrina devastated the coast of Louisiana. Five years later the BP operated Deepwater Horizon exploded and spilled more than 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, the worst ecological disaster in North American history. Those events along with other man-made and natural factors contribute to accelerating land loss.

“Louisiana’s coastal marshes and fisheries are part of America’s patrimony,” Bowermaster said, “They belong to the whole country, not just Louisiana. Our hope is that ‘After The Spill’ helps initiate a national dialog on the disappearing coast.”

Bowermaster’s empathetic look at the state and its people and their relationship to water is revealed in this thought provoking and moving film.

Narrated by Academy Award Winner Melissa Leo and featuring a score by Louisiana guitar legend Sonny Landreth, “After The Spill” reaches deep into the travails and the joy of life in a complicated and compelling place.

“After The Spill” was co-produced by Louisiana residents Winifred Reilly, Kevin Reilly Jr., and Cyril Vetter.
