Lockport -- Filmmakers hope their story about the Louisiana coastline will gain national attention.
Elizabeth Coffman and Ted Hardin began shooting "Veins in the Gulf" in 2003. They watched the state's coastline go through several hurricanes and the BP oil spill, struggling to preserve a way of life.
The documentary shows the coast as it continues to shrink, threatening homes and industries. Coffman hopes people around the country will pay attention.
"I hope they'll take away that this is a national story," she says. "That helping to save southern Louisiana is not just about poor old Louisiana but it's a national story about safety of oil infrastructure, it's a story about seafood and the estuary and the survival of really our environment."
"Veins in the Gulf" will be screened in Nicholls State University's Peltier Auditorium Wednesday night at 6:00 p.m.
