We are preparing for the Kendall premiere of So Flo Floods on Wednesday, August 7th, at 5:30 pm at St. Luke’s Episcopal (Anglican) Church, in conjunction with the Ladies of St. Luke's who will be preparing a lovely tea for all. Suggested contributions are $10 which go in equal measure to support St. Luke’s and TheoEco Institute.
We are actively pursuing several ways to use our documentary, So Flo Floods, to its fullest and one of those is the So Flo Floods STEAM Competition for Miami Beach Senior High where students are participating in the creation of potential touring museum exhibits to complement the film.
So Flo Floods is a film very close to our hearts as both of the producers grew up in Miami. But in the making of the film we realized that South Florida (So Flo) is much bigger than just Miami—it stretches from Naples on the west coast of Florida to localities as far north as Palm Beach and Stuart. It includes both South Beach’s Art Deco hotels and South Florida’s ubiquitous suburban sprawl. It includes beautiful beaches and the Everglades’ wilderness. The risk to the entire area is absolute and the interest is international.
So Flo Floods is a film about how sea level rise and flooding are affecting, have affected, and will affect South Florida, while also providing an illustration for all similarly vulnerable coastal and low-lying areas in the US and worldwide. It paints pictures not theoretical. It is a documentary done by passionate people on a mission to educate and entertain.
The So Flo Floods World Premiere is on June 16th, 2019 at 3pm at the Miami Beach Cinematheque.

So Flo Floods, a feature-length documentary, tells the story of flooding in South Florida—flooding that has happened in the past, is happening now, and will continue to happen in the future.
It has been a full year since the initial screening at University of Miami and we have been very busy re-shooting and editing.

Sea level rise is often talked about as something to be dealt with in the future, but in Miami Beach it is being dealt with, head-on, right now. It is not an academic exercise. So Flo Floods features unique footage to tell the story of what is going on in this world renowned and economically vital city. The film also takes us to Lake Okeechobee and The Herbert Hoover Dike as flood control in South Florida is inherently tied to “Lake O,” which naturally wants to flood into South Florida. The Hoover Dike allows great control over the lake but with significant tradeoffs among the economic, political, and environmental interests which are all intertwined.
