After filming in Louisiana for a couple weeks, Allen will be on his way back to Lancaster in just a few days. He is coming back from Acadiana with some great footage for We Are Cajun. A Documtary Film. While visiting his homeland, Allen gathered handfuls of successful interviews which are going to make the film much easier to piece together. On the trip he spoke with Trent Angers of Acadian House Publishing who authored The Truth About The Cajuns. He captured the process of crawfishing as presented by master fishermans of their craft. In Lafayette, he attended Festival International where he filmed the French Mass and performers of Cajun music. These preservers of the Cajun culture are sure to hilight and shape the film’s message.
Allen and the rest of us at Postage are excited for the next steps ahead towards making the film a possibility.
Today I embark for a trip to Louisiana. It’s not my first… oh no. In fact, I grew up there. Upon the completion of The Chameleon Club, I decided that my next film was to be an important one. I wanted to capture the essence of my heritage in a feature length documentary. This film is likely to be called “We Are Cajun” and is, as of today, underway.
Along the way I honed my mission to include several goals:
- Create a new inspiration for preserving the Cajun culture for generations to come.
- Define Cajun and educate the world on it’s meaning.
- Explain the differences between Cajun and other cultures in terms of language, tradition, cuisine, and the arts and celebrate these differences.
- Debunk cultural stereotypes where they exist.
- Achieve the above with the highest of quality as an archive in HD. A snapshot of the next two years in Cajun history.
While admittedly this seems like a lot, I know it can be accomplished with a handful of select, concise interviews, and a lot of hard work developing and putting the story together.
On this first trip I’ll be speaking to several people who are part of and familiar with the culture, as well as visiting some archives and other resources for cultural information. I’ll be speaking to some people who are preserving Cajun culture by teaching the history at Vermilionville… and even spend a day with purveyors of Cajun foods and fisheries. I look forward to sharing what I know and what I discover with all of you throughout the journey and next year when the film is released. Keep it right here… and “like” http://www.facebook.com/wearecajun on Facebook.
