Dedans Le Sud de la Louisiane (1972)


“Dedans le Sud de la Louisiane, shot in 1972, may very well be the best documentary on Louisiana’s French music and culture ever produced, so it is very good news indeed that this classic film by Jean Pierre Bruneau is now available as a DVD, handsomely packaged in a small book that contains discussions of songs and marvelous old photos. (…) The DVD notes are in both French and English, and the film has English subtitles. Bruneau obviously fell in love with the French-speaking people of South Louisiana and their world, and that love is apparent in every frame of this film (…) ».
