As we mark a little more than two years of the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill disaster, Vanishing Pearls shares the story of the Oystermen of Pointe a la Hache, Louisiana.
This film follows the first year after the catastrophe, as the Oystermen struggle to survive in the face of extreme adversity. Without attention, the Oil Spill could be the death blow to this community that historically has been neglected by State of Louisiana. This documentary resonates further than just Pointe a la Hache. Towns like this exist throughout southern Louisiana and they supply the United States with the majority of its seafood.
