More about this print from CC Lockwood:
"In the late 70s, as I was working on documenting the Atchafalaya Basin through my photography, the Corps of Engineers planned to deepen the channel of the Atchafalaya River in the interest of flood control.  But, in fact, the plan would only have complicated flooding problems.  Ultimately, it would be the ruin of a vital wetland.  I had to find a way to let more people know how valuable the Basin was.  So, I extended my sojourn another year, now with a 16-mm movie camera and the help of my friend Marty Stouffer, who was successfully making educational wildlife films at the time. 

The film was wildly successful.  The LSU Union Theater was packed to the gills for its premier showing; with the theater's 1,315 seats and its aisles filled, some 400 people were turned away.  Congressman Henson Moore spoke, along with Sandra Thompson, executive director of the Governor's Atchafalaya Basin Commission.  The Copas Brothers played songs from the soundtrack before we showed the film.  Louisianians were thirsty to learn more about the basin."
