The Women of Eve’s Bayou (1997)

Written & Directed by Kasi Lemmons

Synopsis: Summer heats up in rural Louisiana beside Eve’s Bayou as the Batiste family tries to survive the secrets they’ve kept and the betrayals they’ve endured.

Louis Batiste (Samuel L. Jackson), the local town doctor with a special bedside manner, is a loving father and philandering husband. His wife Roz (Lynn Whitfield) is forced to admit her family is falling apart when her younger daughter, Eve (Jurnee Smollett), witnesses one of her father’s infidelities. Struggling to make sense of what she has seen, Eve turns to her older sister Cisely, who dismisses her in fear of the truth, and then to her Aunt Mozelle (Debbi Morgan), a known psychic and rumored black widow. Unable to find the the understanding she is looking for, Eve decides to take matters into her own hands. As the heat rises so does the tension. For the Batiste family, the ties that bind may not be strong enough to keep them together, and what they learn will change their lives forever.

Eve’s Bayou | written & directed by Kasi Lemmons (1997)

"Memory is a selection of images, some elusive, others printed indelibly on the brain. The summer I killed my father, I was 10 years old." 

With those opening words, Eve’s Bayou coils back into the past, into the memories of a child who grew up in a family both gifted and flawed, and tried to find her own way to the truth, through the eyes of her older sister, and through the eyes of an aunt who can foretell everyone’s future except for her own.

Eve’s Bayou resonates in the memory. It called me back for a second and third viewing. For the viewer, it is a reminder that sometimes films can venture into the realms of poetry and dreams. —Roger Ebert

Called 'The biggest ongoing disaster in the United States you haven't heard of' by Daily Kos, this is something that is actually happening, within an hour’s driving distance of where I live. There is a sinkhole in Bayou Corne that has been severely agitated by the activities of fossil fuel magnate Texas Brine, operating with “supervision” of the Jindal administration. 

The sinkhole has been active for a year at this point. How long did it take Jindal to visit the site? Seven months. This went on for seven months before our right-wing governor, a man so insane he claims to have assisted in the exorcism of a demon, could deign to visit, because “only” 350 people live there, and, being poor, they have nothing to offer him. In fact, if you read that article, you may have noticed this: 

Jindal’s visit comes 10 days after California based environmentalist Erin Brockovich visited residents at Bayou Corne with California based attorney Tom Girardi. Girardi has offered his legal services to any resident who decides to take further action against Texas Brine and all parties responsible for their troubles over the past seven months. 

Yep, you read that correctly. Jindal didn’t give a single fuck about the 350 people living over a sinkhole that threatens to swallow them whole until an out-of-state lawyer appeared to assist them in getting help and reparations for their losses. 

Spread the word. Please.
