A bizarre mystery begins to unfold when a group of obsessive dreamers and schemers come together to produce an original opera that could change the world.

A decade in the making and six hours long, Hogwash is unlike any other movie you've seen. Composed of 31 episodes, each about 11 minutes, Hogwash is an absurd and loving parody of the traditional episodic series.

As an experimental narrative film, it blurs the line between fiction and nonfiction and aims to create an immersive experience that pushes boundaries and disrupts expectations. For filmmaker Zack Godshall, Hogwash is the culmination of a fifteen-year career making microbudget films that are region-specific and often unscripted.

Featuring a cast of more than fifty (mostly) non-professional actors from South Louisiana, Hogwash is the result of a highly collaborative production that was mostly improvised. Made on something less than a shoestring, every actor and crew member volunteered their time, resources, and imagination to make Hogwash the unique thing that it is.

Modeled on opera form, the show begins with an overture, is broken up into multiple acts, and features two intermissions and one interlude. All together, the entire program lasts 6 hrs and 25 minutes.


Louisiana native Zack Godshall makes films about unsung people and places that exist along the fringes of culture. His films have been acclaimed by The New York Times, The Atlantic, and Oxford American, among others and played at the Sundance Film Festival and on Time.com, Topic, and The Documentary Channel.

Acadiana Center for the Arts

Our mission is fostering art and culture in Acadiana.

Founded in 1975, Acadiana Center for the Arts (“AcA”) is a community-supported nonprofit organization that fosters art and culture in Acadiana. Since its founding, AcA has developed as a major force, shaping the future of public education and community development in South Louisiana.

AcA supports the creation of new works of art, exhibits, festivals, performances, and public art across an eight-parish region that includes Acadia, Evangeline, Iberia, Lafayette, St. Landry, St. Martin, St. Mary, and Vermilion Parishes.  

AcA aims to bring equitable access to the arts and supports fair compensation of artists. On average, AcA serves over 300,000 people annually and provides fair compensation to 2,700 artists.  

In 2013, the AcA merged with the Performing Arts Society of Acadiana (“PASA”), whose mission was to educate, inspire, entertain, and culturally enrich the people of south Louisiana by providing local access to a diverse range of the performing arts. This merger supported the vision of both organizations and provided much-needed support to PASA’s programs. Founded in 1989, PASA served as a leading voice in the performing arts in South Louisiana for close to three decades.
