"A Village Called Versailles" is a feature documentary about Versailles, an
isolated community in eastern New Orleans originally settled by Vietnamese “boat
people”. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Versailles residents impressively rise to
the challenges by returning and rebuilding before any other flooded neighborhood in New
Orleans, only to have their homes threatened by a new government-imposed toxic landfill
just two miles away. "A Village Called Versailles" will recount the empowering
story of how this group of people, who has already suffered so much in their lifetime,
turns a devastating disaster into a catalyst for change and a chance for a better future.
- U.S. Television rights were acquired by ITVS/Independent Lens. PBS plans to broadcast "A Village Called Versailles" in the spring of 2010 (Independent Lens Series).
