Camille: The Original Monster Storm
Before Katrina, there was CAMILLE: THE ORIGINAL MONSTER STORM. Producer / Director Rex Jones says, "Hurricane Camille sometimes gets forgotten in the wake of Katrina, so it was important to me as a filmmaker to commemorate this natural disaster by gathering first-person stories and extensive archival material as we approached its fiftieth anniversary. Disaster preparation and recovery were so different in 1969 than today or even 2005. The devastation of Hurricane Camille was one of the first big tests of resilience in the modern era for the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and the lessons learned from this storm can inform us as we enter a period of climate change that causes more frequent, severe storms.”
