America Reframed | By The River of Babylon

By The River of Babylon

By the River of Babylon takes us into the unique culture and environment of South Louisiana: a habitat that gave rise to Cajun and Creole music, food, and culture, and one that is disappearing at an alarming rate. The film weaves this sad story into a fabric of famed but decaying dance halls and the musical habitat they represented.
