"SoLa: Louisiana Water Stories" is a visually beautiful 2010 documentary by Jon Bowermaster that depicts the rich and complex relationship between people and water on Louisiana’s Gulf Coast, an area rich in culture, biodiversity, and oil. The film explores the many dimensions of environmental justice in a landscape of water, marshland, and petroleum infrastructure — a place that is simultaneously a mega-industrial landscape of refineries and pipelines, an endangered fishery, and an ecological treasure that is fast disappearing under the process of relentless development.
