This segment from the October 24, 2014, episode of the series “Louisiana: The State We’re In” features Charlie Whinham’s story on the creative marriage proposal of Max Zoghbi to Bonnie Kate Pourciau. Bonnie Kate, a native of Baton Rouge, was one of the survivors of the mass shooting at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, on July 20, 2012. Whinham reports that Zoghbi, an aspiring filmmaker, created a fake movie trailer and captured Pourciau’s reactions through hidden cameras. He turned the proposal into a short film called “Wildflower, A Proposal.” Whinham interviews the newlyweds who discuss their memories of the special proposal. Hosts: Charlie Whinham and Shauna Sanford
