It’s a language and a way of life that reminds us of the past. What was once on the brink of extinction is now in some parts of our state flourishing. CODOFIL, The Council for the Development of French in Louisiana is celebrating its 50th anniversary and through these years has played a major role in the renaissance of Louisiana’s French heritage language and culture.


The documentary was produced, written and directed by LPB’s Tika Laudun, who created the duPont Columbia Award-winning six-part series Louisiana: A History. Rex Q. Fortenberry shot and edited the documentary and Dr. William Arceneaux was primary historical advisor for the program.
