Chris Eska - Lafayette

The latest update from filmmaker Chris Eska, touring his film The Retrieval on the Southern Circuit:

Lafayette, Louisiana
Storm clouds erupted across Louisiana as I drove to Lafayette for a screening at Vermilionville Living History Museum. During the screening, the rain pounded the roof and the wind threatened to pry off the walls of the performance hall, but sometimes watching a movie during a thunderstorm can add to the experience and mystery of what’s unfolding on screen. The audience was small, but the discussion afterward was intimate, and they even answered some of my questions about life and Cajun culture in Acadiana.
