France | 73min12 | English with French subtitles

The island of Jean Charles, in southeast Louisiana, is destined to disappear under the ocean within a few years. As a project to relocate the island’s indigenous Choctaw, Biloxi and Chitimacha communities is undertaken by the U.S. State Department, these last inhabitants ponder on their uncertain, precarious future, and on their isolation, between resistance and abandonment to forced migration.

FIFEQ’s review

A luminous and contemplative portrait that immerses itself in the daily life of the last inhabitants of Jean-Charles Isle. A beautiful cinematographic moment punctuated by magnificent images.
