Special Edition of SoLa: Louisiana Water Stories -- a 53-minute version of the original film narrated by environmental activist and singer/songwriter Natalie Merchant.
When we first went to Louisiana, in July 2008, to make a film about the complicated relationship between man and water there we had no idea that our reporting would conclude with the worst manmade ecologic disaster ever.
"SoLa" is a poignant look back at a way of life that may now be gone forever as well as a prescient look at exactly how the gusher in the Gulf was allowed to happen … thanks to corruption, malfeasance and an industry and political climate that environmental pollution simply a cost of doing business.
Also included on the DVD are a dozen new interviews with characters in the original film, recorded over the course of a year following the 2010 explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig and ensuing spill.
