Directed by Brian C Miller Richard
FEATURE NARRATIVE 87 Minutes World Premiere
Gal (Teri Wyble) is helplessly adrift in her own life: trapped in a cycle of addiction and estranged from her young son. When she receives a cryptic and troubling call from her faith-healer father (Dane Rhodes) with alarming news about her mother (Carol Anne Gayle), who passed away several years ago, Gal reluctantly packs her bags and ventures to her father’s houseboat in the remote Louisiana Bayou. When she arrives, he quickly reveals to her a disturbing secret that he’s been harboring: the corpse of a mysterious young woman perfectly preserved and tucked into his bed. His revelation forces them to face a reality that neither of them wants to be true. What follows is a literal and spiritual journey across the Atchafalaya Basin where both Gal and her father are forced to reckon with the grief they’ve been trying so desperately to suppress.

Featuring an immersive soundscape that evokes a world rich with lore and mysticism, Lost Bayou is a hauntingly evocative slice of Louisiana life that traces the fraught journey out of pain and into healing.
