About the film:


Saving The Great Swamp:  Battle to Defeat the Jetport is an in-depth look at the events, people and politics behind the struggle to preserve a way of life in the communities located near the Great Swamp between 1959 and 1968.  The film features interviews with numerous residents, historians, authors and officials connected to the events, and includes such notables as Congressman Rodney Frelinghuysen, authors Cam Cavanaugh and Jameson Doig, conservationist David Moore, the Fenske family, and many others. The documentary also features high-end cinematography of the Great Swamp today, and many old photographs and archival materials that bring the story to life.

Award-winning filmmaker Scott Morris and co-producer Larry Fast have been working on Saving The Great Swamp full-time for two years, inspired by the idea that the jetport struggle serves as a model for environmental action in the face of powerful forces.  It’s a story that continues to resonate today.  All of those involved in the production of this unique film are excited that it will be presented first to an audience in the community where it all began.
