Plot Synopsis: A powerfully moving large format film unlike any other, Hurricane on
the Bayou carries audiences behind today's news headlines on a journey deep into the soulstirring
heart of Louisiana—before, during and after the unprecedented devastation of Hurricane
Katrina. Narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Meryl Streep and driven by a rousing jazz,
blues and gospel-fueled soundtrack featuring music legends Fats Domino, Aaron Neville, Dr.
John and many more, Hurricane on the Bayou is both a haunting document of a storm's human effects and a
compelling call to restore Louisiana's wetlands, rebuild New Orleans, and honor the place where America's most
vibrant home-grown culture was born. Unfolding against the poignant backdrop of the most costly natural disaster
in America's history, MacGillivray Freeman's IMAX cameras follow a group of four musicians, both legendary and
rising, as they explore the electrifying culture of New Orleans: speed through the beautiful, alligator-filled bayous
on airboats; recount their heart-wrenching, personal stories of Katrina; and, most of all, bring the focus to the
rapidly disappearing wetlands that are New Orleans' first line of defense against deadly storms.
