TheoEco is reaching out to high school students in the So FLo FLoods locales to create essays, artworks, exhibits, and explorations of topics in the film related to art, economics, environmental activism, history, STEM, and writing...
The film contains new video, vintage photos, aerial shots, animation, sculptures, memorials, sweeping footage, and more. We need new works that capture the past, present, AND FUTURE of South Florida.
Economic outcomes are front-and-center in So Flo Floods. Why are the risks so big, and central to how the future will play out? What are the economic impacts, both macro and micro?
The film follows Jacqui Thurlow-Lippisch both in the air and on the ground and interviews her in-depth for a fascinating look at how individuals can make a big difference.
From pre-history to modern day, So Flo Floods traces the history of South Florida’s flooding. The film borrows heavily upon the contributions of Paul George and HistoryMiami, and the Lawrence E. Will Museum in Belle Glade.
STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics)
Miami Beach’s experience in particular is central to So Flo Floods’ illustration of what flooding means to South Florida today. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math are central to all these things.
Killer ‘Cane’s firsthand accounts capture the horrors of the 1928 Hurricane on Lake Okeechobee’s Glades communities that killed thousands. There are so many stories left – both fiction and non-fiction.
Winners will receive prize money and awards and are eligible for inclusion in the So FLo FLoods exhibitions accompanying the film’s screenings, exhibitions, and studies.
