A modern-day story of love, loss and resilience, the film follows Monique Verdin’s quest to find a place in her Native American community, the Houma Nation, in the Mississippi Delta. As Monique struggles to overcome the loss of her father and partner and her house during Hurricane Katrina, she must redefine the meaning of home and the meaning of life on her own. Reeling from decades of environmental degradation from big oil interests and disasters, both natural and man-made, My Louisiana Love reveals the complex and uneven relationship between the oil industry and the indigenous community of the Mississippi Delta. Directed by Sharon Linezo Hong.
