Summary: The Island of Saint Matthews examines the loss of family history in the form of heirlooms and photographs. Years ago filmmaker Kevin Jerome Everson asked his aunt about old family photographs. Her reply—"we lost them in the flood"—was the catalyst for this film, a poem and paean to the citizens of Westport and the direct and oblique remnants of the 1973 flood of the Tombigbee River.
