“Little River” is a grand American story of incredible will and determination. Southeast Missouri, now an agricultural wonder, was once the Great Southeast Missouri Swamp. In 1928, after 8 years of planning and 14 years of backbreaking work, it became the world’s largest drainage project, moving more earth than the construction of the Panama Canal. It is known as The Little River Drainage Project.
“Little River” is a fiscally sponsored project of the International Documentary Association (IDA), 501(c)(3) nonprofit arts organization. Contributions in support of “Little River” are payable to IDA and are tax deductible as allowed by law. (documentary.org)
In striving to make sure the film meets the highest standard of historical accuracy, we have enlisted the help of retired SEMO history professor Frank Nickell to act as a historical advisor. In addition, the board of the Little River Drainage District (www.thelrdd.org) is cooperating in the process and will serve as a resource.
