"The first film to consider the music in terms of the culture rather than the culture in terms of the music. In 1972 the original giants of Creole and Cajun music were still with us, and playing music that was local and functional, not yet either a bayou tourist attraction or part of the club mix from Twickenham to Tokyo. As such it was a deeper, fiercer music than is often heard today. A memorable experience, both musically and visually." (Chris Smith, Blues n' Rhythm) "Inside South Louisiana" is a documentary film classic shot in 1972 by Jean-Pierre Bruneau during the golden age of Cajun and Creole Music.
