Walking on Dead Fish, a documentary by Franklin Martin on a post-Katrina Louisiana high school football team, opens in Lafayette on Friday, Oct. 24 at the Carmike 10. The film, which is narrated by Terry Bradshaw and executive produced by Reggie Bush, has received coverage in The New York Times, Sports Illustrated, and ESPN in recent months.

Walking on Dead Fish tells the story of the East St. John Wildcats, a small-town high school football team that overcomes racial, religious and financial differences to brave the adversity delivered by Hurricane Katrina.
