Product Description

Filming Robert Flaherty's Louisiana Story (PB)

By Eva Orbanz and Mary Lea Bandy, essay by Richard Barsam

This book details the production of Robert Flaherty's most beautiful and most ambitious film, Louisiana Story. At its core are the production diaries of Helen van Dongen, associate producer and editor for the project and a pioneer among women filmmakers. Her informative notes, never published before, illuminate the problems of shooting the film on location in the bayou country of Louisiana.

Louisiana Story had its premiere at The Museum of Modern Art in 1948. The film has been restored through a collaboration of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Library of Congress, and the UCLA Film and Television Archive. 80 b/w illustrations.
