FILM | Clarice Friloux, Grand Bois, Louisiana

Title:  Clarice Friloux, Grand Bois, Louisiana

Length:  6′ 13″

Subject:  We met Clarice Friloux through my cousin, Maxx Sizeler and her former partner, Bea Calvert. Bea’s mother, Mercedes Calvert, was an interview we conducted in Metarie, Lousiana, and she had said we should really talk to her niece who had led a fight against an oil company and won.

The case, for obvious reasons, drew a lot of attention nationwide. She is from the Houma Tribe of Native Peoples and has openly fought to have the waste of the oil industry dealt with, primarily because it is often dumped in her backyard. Literally.
