Mallozzi Film to Air on PBS World

My Louisiana Love, a film edited and co-produced by Julie Mallozzi (FAV), will air on PBS World as part of the America Reframed series. The film tells the story of a young woman’s quest to find a place in her Native American community as it reels from decades of environmental degradation.

My Louisiana Love follows a young Native American woman, Monique Verdin, as she returns to Southeast Louisiana to reunite with her Houma Indian family.  But soon she sees that her people’s traditional way of life- fishing, trapping, and hunting in these fragile wetlands — is threatened by a cycle of man-made environmental crises. Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil leak are just the latest rounds in this century-old cycle that is forcing Monique’s clan to adapt in new ways.  Monique must overcome the loss of her house, her father, and her partner- and redefine the meaning of home.
