Politicians like to say they want to “drain the swamp,” as if the swamp were a terrible, godforsaken place. After spending 160 hours in a Florida swamp, filmmaker Vicki Nantz can report that the swamp is one of the most valuable ecosystems on earth, and home to an amazing array of wildlife. She discovered there are few places more life-affirming, beautiful and beneficial. Once you experience the zen of the swamp you’ll know that “drain the swamp” is the worst metaphor ever.
