Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this visually innovative experimental feature, shot on digital video, a woman labors to escape the stifling emotional demands of her family. As she explores the beautiful and exotic swamplands on the outskirts of her hometown in Florida, the woman finds an unusual soul mate in a strange creature which appears to be half woman and half bird. As she bonds with her avian counterpart, the woman learns some valuable lessons about her own emotional and spiritual selves. Everglades City was the first feature film from director and video artist Matthew Geller.
