PROGRESS, PORK-BARREL, AND PHEASANT FEATHERS

de Holly FISHER
1966 / 16mm / n&b / sonore / 1E / 26' 43

Framed within controversy over construction of the Florida Cross State Barge Canal by the US Army Corps of Engineers, this film is an intimate case study of pork barrel politics. The Canal was to slash across upper Florida, and so reduce the cost of shipping Texas oil. A last remaining wild river was to be its water feed-source. As a verité depiction of a grass roots attempt to save the river, is mirror to battles raging globally between fossil fuel interests, global warming, you name it.
