This film is unlike any documentary you've seen on Hurricane Katrina. On August 29, 2005, Rockey Vaccarella rode out the storm on his roof in his hometown of Mereaux, Louisiana, a small community just outside of New Orleans, by holding on to a rope for 4 hours. Rockey and his family lost everything except for the clothes on their backs, but he refused to give up.

Nearly one year after surviving the worst natural disaster in the history of America, Rockey set out on a mission to get the word out on the realities of the disaster, and to spread the message that this cannot be forgotten, because the job is not done. In the process, he proved that nothing is impossible if you refuse to give up.

A Ghost Rider Pictures Release, FORGOTTEN ON THE BAYOU is directed by Steven Scaffidi.

PLEASE NOTE: This program is offered twice--at 5:00pm and again at 7:30pm, in Auditorium 4 only. You pick the time; no need to let the Cinema Society office know of your choice.

Running Time: 84 Minutes

Rated: G
