Grant Details

A one-hour documentary film about the battle to defeat the proposed jetport at the Great Swamp in the 1960s.

Organization Background

The mission of the film is to deliver important messages about protecting the environment and the impact on surrounding communities. What began as a local effort in New Jersey escalated all the way to the United States Congress in Washington, DC where is was finally resolved 9 years later. The film promises to tell the true story of the jetport for the first time, and how the successful efforts to oppose it became the model for the national environmental movement of the 1970s.
