Waters of Destiny

Date
1957 (circa)
Description
This film uses actual hurricane footage to show the damage from uncontrolled storm water, describing how the Army Corps of Engineers and the Central and Southern Florida Flood Control District tamed the Everglades. The melodramatic narration combined with outstanding footage of storms and floods makes this a compelling film. The piece ends by showing off the manpower and equipment used to change Florida's environment, with all good intentions. Wildlife photography is by E.W. Dutton. Waters of Destiny was filmed in Kodachrome.
