The story of Fazendeville is a story of freedom and community; of family and independence; and ultimately, a story of triumph over sorrow: the story of a unique village known as Fazendeville.
WLAE-TV (New Orleans Public Television) is producing a documentary film, Battlegrounds: The Lost Community of Fazendeville. The film will be shown on public television in New Orleans and across the State of Louisiana. The documentary will utilize fascinating historic documents, photographs and oral histories. But most importantly, the documentary will memorialize interviews with former residents of the village to create an historic legacy of this tiny but significant community: Fazendeville.
