History major Samantha Perez and Communication major Joshua Robin will premier their documentary film about the history and culture of the Isleños population in St. Bernard Parish. They created the film during the 2009 spring semester in a first-ever joint independent study class directed by Communication and History faculty. The Isleños originally migrated from Spain to the Canary Islands and later moved to Louisiana, where they are an important part of local culture. Reception to follow.
