Join the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum for “The Saints Are Coming” documentary film screening and Q&A with producer Doug Tatum Saturday, Feb. 11 at 2 p.m.
The documentary weaves through the apocalyptic effects of Hurricane Katrina, the Saints’ subsequently nomadic 2005 season, the tireless efforts of countless many to salvage both New Orleans and the Superdome, the reorganization of the Saints’ coaching hierarchy led by Loomis and Payton, the overhauling of the Saints’ roster highlighted by the addition of a wounded Brees, and the behind-the-scenes musical inspirations led by musical icon The Edge and the importance that New Orleans has on the global music community. The documentary culminates with the unforgettable events surrounding the Saints’ return to New Orleans on Sept. 25 and the team’s 23-3 victory over NFC South rival Atlanta Falcons.
