Documentary filmmaker Jon Bowermaster has a fine blog up today about Louisiana’s relationship with oil and water. Bowermaster has been working on a film set in the Bayou State for the past two years, exploring the connections between man and the water. It begins, he says, with one oil spill, in the Mississippi River, and now, just as he was wrapping it up, he had to come back to update the film, SoLa, Louisiana Water Stories, with footage of the current disaster in the Gulf.

Bowermaster’s most recent book is OCEANS, The Threats to the Sea and What You Can Do To Turn the Tide. An anthology of original essays by some of the world’s most intriguing ocean thinkers and doers, the book is companion to the new Jacques Perrin/DisneyNature film OCEANS, in theaters in Lafayette right now.
