The Process – Director – Matt Pycroft – ColdHouse Collective – UK, 15 minute film

A funny, honest, genuine and heartfelt story.

In their quest to identify the pollinator of the ghost orchid, a team spent three summers standing waist-deep in alligator- and snake-laden water, swatting air blackened by mosquitoes, and climbing to nausea-inducing heights. They came away with an even deeper love for Florida’s wildest wetlands – and with surprising revelations that may help to conserve the endangered orchid and its shrinking home.
