Happy Labor day Dreamers & Doers! I have an amazing labor day gift for all you hardworkers.Th Cinematic and emotion gripping documentary ,Vanishing Pearls,distributed through AFFRM will begin streaming on NETFLIX today! VANISHING PEARLS ,produced and directed by New Orleans native Nailah Jefferson ,is the story of paradise lost – an ongoing, environmental David and Goliath struggle between multinational oil and gas company BP (Beyond Petroleum) and a 300 person, Louisiana Gulf community dependant on oyster fishing. The battlefield is the Gulf coast of Louisiana, and the opening salvo was the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Sit back relax on this labor free day and check out a generation of fishermen in New Orleans confronted by environmental, economical and emotional issues in one of the most biggest environmental tragedies of our time.
