Shot in high definition on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, featuring never-before-seen storm footage, and scored with an original blues-rock soundtrack composed and performed by Katrina survivors, Mississippi Son (95 min.) tells the heartwrenching and heartwarming story of the people, the culture, and the future in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

Born and raised in Gulfport, Mississippi, Emmy award winning L.A. filmmaker Don Wilson was deeply moved by the losses of his friends and family. In this film, he returns home to talk to those who lived through the hurricane and continue to deal with the aftermath of the storm.

While the media has been focused on New Orleans, Mississippi Son reminds us that the Mississippi Gulf Coast was completely destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. We made this film to give a voice to the people who have been neglected by the media, FEMA, SBA, and the insurance companies as billions continue to pour into the war in Iraq.

We would like to extend special thanks to The Edge and Music Rising along with the Grammy's MusiCares. The soundtrack was recorded with instruments bought with grants from these two generous organizations dedicated to helping musicians, especially those who lost everything in the storm.

We would also like to thank the Telly Awards who have honored Mississippi Son for achievement in Editing, Use of Music, and Documentary Filmmaking.
