"In 1995 two filmmakers hid surveillance cameras in the death chamber and recorded a man's execution. The footage was confiscated and hidden from the public for over ten years...until now."
This extraordinary story will keep you on the edge of your seat as you follow two filmmakers in their quest to film a man's execution in the electric chair. The last 20 minutes of the film is not to be missed and could be offensive to some viewers.
The film has stirred up much controversy, and has been recognized at many of the top film festivals in the world including:
The Moondance Film Festival in Hollywood, The Australian International Film Festival, The Houston International Film Festival, The Big Muddy Film Festival, and The Rome International Film Festival.
The film has also screened by special invitation at many renowned universities including: The University of Cambridge (UK), UCLA, Tulane University, The University of Oregon, Sussix University (UK), The University of North Carolina, Seattle University, Central Washington University, and King's College of London (UK).
Two die-hard fans tell the unbelievable story of their role in sports' history and how they help take the most unfortunate team in professional football all the way to the Super Bowl...and win!
Bubby and Matty are twin brothers who are ultimate die-hard football fans for their team in New Orleans commonly known throughout the league as the most unfortunate team in the history of the sport.
The two brothers have stood by their team through thick and thin for 44 long years and have never stopped believing that New Orleans would one day play for the world championship.
On the morning of the biggest game in the history of the franchise, Bubby and Matty, decked out in their best black and gold football attire, show up at McNutts, a local mid-city bar where it’s been said that the greatest football fans in the world hang out.
With seven hours to go until kickoff, the boys surprise Roxy, the beautiful but hard-nosed owner of the bar and grab the two best seats in the house right in front of the big-screen TV.
Roxy is suspicious of the two mysterious fans from the beginning when the brothers start to spin a wild tale about how they have played a key role in team history since day one and in fact are responsible for helping the team get to the big game.
As the bar begins to fill with all of the usual regulars, Bubby and Matty continue to tell their unbelievable story despite the fact that everyone is laughing at them and wondering why these two strangers are even there and not at another hangout of their own or at the game in Miami.
As kickoff time nears, Bubby and Matty’s crazy story surprisingly stands up to all of the naysayers even the ones who think that they can poke holes in the story and embarrass the perceived liars.
But there’s something very different about these two guys who appeared out of nowhere and captured the attention of true die-hard fans who have never had much of a reason to believe in their team until now.
Some people believed that hell would freeze over before New Orleans would get to the big game…and well, maybe it did just that.

When Hurricane Mitch took aim at the coast of Central America in October 1998, no one could imagine that it would result in one of the most destructive natural disasters in the Western Hemisphere. Untold thousands of people lost their lives; many more were left homeless, their livelihoods destroyed.
Filmmaker Steven Scaffidi has always held Central America in special regard. (His wife, Ana, is a native Honduran.) When the calamity struck, their first instinct was to send aid. Then Steven had a better idea. Along with supplies, a few donations, and using his family savings, he assembled a professional film crew and set out to document the unforgettable story of the people who had survived the ravages of Mitch. Arriving only days after the hurricane, Steve and his team traveled around Honduras, hardest hit of all Central American countries. The scenes they captured and the stories that are told will forever be remembered.
The People's Story was a finalist for the 2000 Academy Awards and is a winner at the New York Film Festival, Telluride Independent Film Festival, and the Houston International Film Festival.

Rockey Vaccarella made local news when he survived Hurricane Katrina by holding onto a rope on his roof for four hours. If that wasn't enough, he then made world news when he towed his FEMA trailer to Washington DC to try and get a meeting with the President of the United States...AND HE DID IT!
Rockey's story proves that nothing is impossible if you refuse to quit.
This film has touched the hearts of America because it is the ultimate story of hope and determination. "Forgotten on the Bayou" is the winner of the prestigious Humanitarian Vision Award at the Newport Beach Film Festival and has won many other film festivals across the United States.
"Forgotten on the Bayou" premiered nationally on August 27, 2010 on the Weather Channel and was broadcast commercial free on Fox 8 television in New Orleans on the 5th anniversary of Katrina. The New Orleans airing was a fundraiser for Rockey who has been hospitalized since May 2010 with a rare case of encephalitis.
A percentage of the sale of Forgotten on the Bayou will go to Rockey and his family.
