ABOVE BELOW SEA LEVEL
Directed and Produced by Andy Madeleine
Director of Photography John Anderson Beavers
In August of 2016, prolonged rainfall caused what some referred to as 'a thousand year flood,' devastating a region in Southeast Louisiana. 13 lives were lost, and many of those who survived lost their homes, businesses, and belongings. To most, the flood came as a shock, as the area they inhabited was thought to be in a 'flood-safe' zone. 'Above Below Sea Level' explores the relationship between humans and nature, and paints a portrait of a community as its people attempt to recover from tragedy.
