The Story Of The Cajuns

"The Story Of The Cajuns," scheduled to be shown on August 14th, 2014 - "Louisiana Day" at the World Acadian Congress, is nearly finished. Filming took place in Louisiana, France and Canada.

Folks who have waited so long for this epic documentary can click on this photo to preview a few highlights from the show. We plan to bring the film to Louisiana in the new year for showings in Acadiana.

"The Story Of The Cajuns" starts at the time of the Deportation of the Acadians from Nova Scotia in 1755 and follows the Acadians on their journey to Louisiana where they become known as Cajuns.

Their stories will be woven together with narrative links from a well-loved Cajun musician and storyteller, David Greely, whose masterful fiddle playing also graces the sound track of the film.

The film explores the physical hardships Cajuns faced, their connections to other cultures, the prejudice they endured and the way they had to salvage their culture, and especially their language, when it became threatened by a mainstream mentality. The film shows how a journey begun in tragedy ends in triumph.
