Cigarettes & Nylons
Cigarettes & Nylons follows three young women through hope and disillusionment, love and heartbreak, to a time when even as the world was burning, young hearts were set aflame.
Living with Hurricanes: Katrina & Beyond
Living with Hurricanes: Katrina and Beyond at the Presbytere in New Orleans includes Cote Blanche's "Living with Water" which plays above Fats Domino's wrecked piano to the final room's "Life in Balance" where 14 screens show what it's like to live here and why we stay.
The Man Who Came Back
The Civil War is over and Reese Paxton (Eric Braeden, The Young and the Restless) just wants a quiet life with his wife, Angelique (Carol Alt), and their young son, Gabe (Brady Hender). But in this South, it takes more than losing a war for some men to admit defeat.
Beginning in the mid 1990s, Côte Blanche Productions produced a trilogy of environmental documentaries for the Barataria Terrebonne National Estuary Program. Barataria-Terrebonne — basically that enormous tangle of bayous, bays and wetlands that form a triangle between the Mississippi River, the Atchafalaya Swamp, and the Gulf of Mexico — is the fastest disappearing land mass in the world.
Welcome to Côte Blanche
Since 1977, Côte Blanche Productions has been bringing the stories of southern Louisiana to the world. Our Cajun films give a voice to an entire culture. Our museum and radio projects, publications, and oral history collections preserve Louisiana’s past for future generations.
Production Services: Not every movie we work on is our own production, nor do all of them have connections to Louisiana. Glen Pitre’s credits include producing the thriller In Quiet Night in California, directing Time Served in Chicago, and writing Heart of India in the shadow of the Taj Mahal, in faraway South Asia.
