    Louisiana Story is the last film made by Robert J. Flaherty. The film, about oil-drilling, was sponsored by the Standard Oil Company of New Jersey.

    Louisiana Story is centred around a Cajun boy who is confronted with the expanding oil-industry in the paradisal, mysterious marsh area of Louisiana. The film crew consisted of, among others, Richard Leacock and Helen van Dongen, both of whom later became famous.
