As the good earth sinks is a short documentary film about a closely-knit tribal community on the
Louisiana gulf coast bayou of Pointe-aux-Chenes. It tells the story of a native tribe struggling to
maintain their way of life and their identity despite land loss due to rising sea levels, climate change
and impacts from oil drilling. The film explores the perspectives of several long-time residents of the
bayou and examines themes related to climate, culture, and the environment.
