Emmy Award winning journalist and filmmaker Bill Rodman details nature photographer CC Lockwood's return to America's largest swamp wilderness, thirty years after his acclaimed Atchafalaya book and National Geographic article. Surprisingly, Lockwood finds the swamp's most interesting and threatened species has since vanished. The story Rodman weaves explores the degree to which the Atchafalaya Swamp has changed - naturally and culturally - since the great flood of 1927, while revealing an account of one of America's last and most intriguing frontier communities.
The program was funded by the Atchafalaya Trace Commission and Heritage Area and supported, in part, by funds from the Louisiana State Arts Council, the Louisiana Division of the Arts and by the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge through the Decentralized Arts Funding Program.
