 Description: Can't Stop the Water tells the story of Isle de Jean Charles, Louisiana and the Native American community fighting to save its culture as its land washes away.
For 170 years, a tribe of Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw Indians has occupied Isle de Jean Charles, an island deep in the Louisiana bayous. They have fished, hunted, and lived off the land. Now the land that has sustained them for generations is vanishing before their eyes. Years of gas and oil exploration have ravaged the surrounding marsh, leaving the island defenseless against the ocean tide that will eventually destroy it. As Chief Albert Naquin desperately looks for a way to bring his tribe together on higher ground, those that remain on the island cling to the hope that they can stay. This award winning short film paintes an intimate portrait of a community on the front lines of coastal erosion and climate change.
