A VILLAGE CALLED VERSAILLES
By S. Leo Chiang.
Welcome to Versailles home to the most ethnically dense Vietnamese population outside Vietnam. For over 30 years, its residents lived a quiet existence on the edge of New Orleans. But then came Hurricane Katrina, the immense piles of garbage and the shocking discovery of a toxic landfill planned just miles away. Watch their inspiring story as they fight back, turning a devastating disaster into a catalyst for change and a chance to build a better future. (53 minutes)
