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.
