Join Shrimp Boat Projects, poet Martha Serpas and filmmakers Elizabeth Coffman and Ted Hardin for a screening of Veins in the Gulf, a documentary that traces the history of rapidly disappearing bayous, the environmental crises of southern Louisiana, and the international impact of Cajun culture. Through interviews with fisherman, engineers, poets, and scientists, bear witness as Louisiana residents confront the mortality of their culture and a community tries to solve its environmental crises. Join the Mitchell Center for fresh Gulf Coast shrimp and this exploration of southern culture and discover where great American literature, music, seafood and oil have come from for the past century.
