Looking for Trouble

About the Film

Violence at Cajun dances, bars, and night clubs increased exponentially after the Civil War. Locals coped with economic collapse and the horrors of war by formulating an honor code, one that defined how Cajuns settled disputes. "Looking for Trouble," the first documentary by David M. Brasseaux, examines the often bloody conflicts that raged in two Acadia Parish communities during the twentieth century. This film portrays the dramatic memory of knife-toting bullies and their pistol-carrying victims who interrupted social life in Pointe Noire and Marais Bouleur.
