The film comes after a book from Acadian House Publishing in 2017 – “The Day of the Cajundome Mega-Shelter: The Small City that Sprang Up in the Wake of Hurricane Katrina.” “Cajundome city” melds recent interviews of evacuees and volunteers with past interviews and archival footage.

The film “Cajundome City” will premiere at 7:15 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 25, at UL Lafayette’s LITE Center. The documentary examines how the venue became the country’s first mega-shelter with a medical clinic, pharmacy, commissary and post office.
