A sneak preview of “My Louisiana Love,” a documentary film by NOPA member Monique Verdin, will be screened on the evening of Monday, April 23 at Nunemaker Auditorium on the campus of Loyola University New Orleans. The showing will begin at 7:30 p.m.

The film, produced by Loyola alum Verdin and and Sharon Linezo Hong, concerns a young Southeast Louisiana woman’s quest to find a place in her Native American (Houma Nation) community as it suffers from decades of environmental degradation.

A discussion with the filmmakers will follow the screening. The event is free and open to the public.

The auditorium is located in Monroe Hall on the university’s main Uptown campus. Free parking will be available at its West Road Garage, at the time of the screening.
