When I received a press release in April 2009 promoting the upcoming releases, this film immediately caught my eye. Having been in New Orleans over the Labor Day Weekend in 1988, I loved the city and made a number of friends whom I have stayed in touch with for more than 20 years.

The press release read:
Voted "Best Feature" at the 10th Annual Brooklyn Academy of Music Kids Film Festival, Labou is about the camaraderie of three children in search of a ghost pirate and his long lost treasure. Lost in the Louisiana bayou after being chased by the ghost of Captain LeRouge, Emily, Gavin, and Toddster stumble across a little creature named Labou whose home is about to be destroyed by two money hungry oil tycoons. Determined to save the swamps and their new found friend, they devise a plan and enlist the help of the legendary ghost pirate to rid the wetlands of its imposters once and for all.
