River of Grass brings audiences on a journey through the past, present, and precarious future of the Florida Everglades, an imperiled and iconic American region on the verge of collapse. Reimagining Marjory Stoneman Douglas’s groundbreaking non-fiction book “The Everglades: River of Grass,” the film weaves history and contemporary stories with evocative landscapes to explore how the state’s ecological crisis is rooted in ongoing legacies of settler colonialism.
