Louisiana Story 

When: Sun., Feb. 7 2016
Considered the father of the documentary film, director Robert J. Flaherty made a number of significant films before he passed away in 1951. With Return of the Naive, a special program featuring four features and four short films, the Cleveland Museum of Art provides a retrospective of his work. Today at 1:30 p.m., it screens his 1948 film Louisiana Story, a documentary about a Cajun boy who lives peacefully in the bayou before an oil rig disrupts his life. It shows on a restored 35mm print from the Library of Congress collection. Tickets are $10. (Niesel)
