UNO documentary: Envisioning 'A World Without Shrimp'

Is the Louisiana shrimper an endangered species?

With seafood prices flat and recovering from back-to-back environmental disasters, the business is challenging, to say the least, say the lifelong south Louisiana shrimp fishermen interviewed by UNO film student Michael DiJohn.

The short documentary "A World Without Shrimp" gives new understanding of how the locavore movement hits home for both producers and consumers.

The Film and Theatre Department of UNO and NolaVie present this series of short films produced by the students in Laszlo Fulop's documentary class. Read Renee Peck's column about the program here.
