The Mississippi River Flood of 1927 was the most destructive river flood in American history.

Part of it enduring legacy was the mass exodus of displaced sharecroppers. Musically, the Great Migration of rural southern blacks to Northern cities saw the Delta Blues electrified and reinterpreted as the Chicago Blues, Rhythm and Blues, and Rock and Roll. Using minimal text and no spoken dialog, filmmaker Bill Morrison and composer - guitarist Bill Frisell have created a powerful portrait of a seminal moment in American history through a collection of silent images matched to a searing original soundtrack.The Great Flood is available for rent or purchase on Prime Video, and available for rent or purchase on VUDU. It's a documentary and history movie with a very high Rotten Tomatoes (critics) score of 93% and a better than average IMDb audience rating of 7.0 (92 votes).
