Eco Urgency Sasha Wortzel

Sasha Wortzel is working on an ongoing series “River of Grass,” which recounts the Everglades’ violent past and warns of Florida's precarious future. An homage to Marjory Stoneman Douglas's book The Everglades: River of Grass (1947), Wortzel’s film explores how Florida’s vulnerability to climate change is rooted in the Everglades’ ongoing legacies of colonization. This project has received generous support from the Sundance Documentary Fund and Field of Vision.

The artist and filmmaker was born and raised on the coast of southwest Florida and has worked in New York and Miami. Wortzel blends documentary and narrative storytelling, her films, installations, and performances explore how structures of power shape our lives around race, gender, desire, and landscape. Her work has been presented widely in film and museum venues. Wortzel received an MFA in Integrated Media Arts from Hunter College.
