Mossville: When Great Trees Fall

Mossville: When Great Trees Fall Movie Poster

Mossville, Louisiana is a shadow of its former self a community rich in natural resources and history, founded by formerly enslaved people and free people of color where neighbors lived in harmony, insulated from the horrors of Jim Crow. Today, however, Mossville no longer resembles the town it once was.

Surrounded by 14 petrochemical plants, Mossville is the future site of apartheid-born South African-based chemical company Sasol's newest plant proposed as a $21.2 billion project and the largest in the western hemisphere.
