Swamp Cabbage is a dark and sweaty documentary about a half-Cracker* stuck in Brooklyn who discovers that the eccentric Florida childhood she left behind is actually the key to surviving love and loss in an increasingly disconnected world. One-part diary film, one-part cooking show and one-part environmental adventure, Swamp Cabbage is both an entertaining character-driven drama and a metaphor for the need to restore balance in a world gutted by the disappearing human connection to the land and food chain.

* In Florida, “Cracker” is a term of pride referring to the descendents of Florida pioneers known for their ability to survive in the treacherous Florida wilderness. It is unrelated to the slur meaning ignorant white bigot.
