MRGO ing Going Gone?
Award winning filmmaker Kevin McCaffrey’s latest documentary, MRGO ing, Going, Gone explores the evolution of environmental awareness in Louisiana through the fifty year history of the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet navigation channel. The MRGO was an ill conceived contributor to the environmental disaster and subsequent post hurricane flooding in New Orleans and St. Bernard Parish in 1965 and 2005. Dr. Bob Thomas of The Loyola University Center for Environmental Communications conceived and developed the ten year project and brought Kevin onto the team in 2006. Funded by several grants, the film is appearing on public television station WYES, Channel 12.
