Glen Pitre’s film Belizaire the Cajun is in limited rerelease for its twenty-fifth anniversary.   Set in 1859, it’s the story of a Cajun in love with the wife of another man, and it’s the story of vigilantism directed against Cajuns in south Louisiana.   The soundtrack is played primarily by Michael Doucet and BeauSoleil, using mostly traditional tunes.  Pitre is both writer and director on this story of the western frontier.  The film is profiled in Americanpress.com.   Screenings are set for both Lafayette and Chalmette (April 1-7).  See it on the big screen while you can!
