Cry of the Marsh is the original documentary that inspired thousands of young ecologists in the 1960s and 70s.  Bob Hartkopf filmed Cry of the Marsh with just a single 16mm camera, creating a vivid portrait of the high toll exacted on the environment by industrial-sized farming.  With its graphic images and compelling score, Cry of the Marsh became an instant classic within the green movement of the early 1970s.
