“The Swamp” Presented by Science Matters as a part of the RVA Environmental Film Festival

Date: Friday, February 8, 2019
Time: 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Location: Community Idea Stations, 23 Sesame Street, Richmond, VA 23235

Join us at the Community Idea Stations for an evening of film and conversation about one of nature’s most mysterious and unique ecosystems – the Florida Everglades. The PBS/American Experience film, The Swamp explores the repeated efforts to transform what was seen as a vast and useless wasteland into an agricultural and urban paradise, ultimately leading to a passionate campaign to preserve America’s greatest wetland. The story is told through the lives of a handful of colorful and resolute characters, from hucksters to politicians to unlikely activists. As the world copes with increasingly deadly weather events, The Swamp is a timely tale of the perils of mankind’s abuse of nature. Based in part on the book The Swamp: The Everglades, Florida, and the Politics of Paradise by Michael Grunwald, The Swamp is produced and directed by Randall MacLowry and executive produced by Mark Samels. Producer/Director Randall MacLowry will speak and discuss your questions at the event.

6:00 p.m. Reception, 7:00 p.m. Film and Q & A with Director and Producer Randall MacLowry
