Tom Phillips scores The Swamp for American Experience

The Swamp will premiere on Tuesday, January 15, 2019, a 2 hour documentary film that tells the dramatic story of man's attempt to conquer the Florida Everglades. Produced by Randall MacLowry and The Film Posse, edited by Mark Dugas, and scored by Tom Phillips, the film focuses on how The Everglades suffered due to man's desire to turn it into an agricultural source of profit, constructing dredged canals to drain it and dikes to attempt to control the flow of water. All proved to be disastrous and also proved to be irrevocably damaging to the natural order of one of the most wondrous and mysterious environments on the planet. A fascinating film that is truly eye opening.
