So FLo FLoods Bahamian Relief Screening & Streaming In Conjunction with Episcopal Churches Throughout South Florida - Friday September 27th at 7 PM
the So FLo FLoods is the new feature documentary from TheoEco about flooding in South Florida--past, present, and future. All of the churches invited are in the locales of the film’s shoots and interviews. So FLo FLoods is not available except at in-person screenings at theaters, churches, schools, community centers, museums, and similar venues.
Originally organized before Hurricane Dorian ravaged the Bahamas this screening turned into a relief event as it became apparent there were so many areas of commonality between issues raised by the film – and what we see in the Bahamas. This includes obvious issues such as flooding and storm surge impacts, but also human justice issues engendered by the film’s treatment of the 1928 “Forgotten Hurricane” that left more than 3,000 dead in the Glades area at the southeastern edge of Lake Okeechobee. The film shows these things in dramatic fashion, so that we can know what our neighbors on The Abacos know all too well. These issues are especially poignant given the near misses of so many Cat 5 storms by South Florida in recent years – including Dorian.
The event will take place as a live streamed event to all the participating churches simultaneously, with a live Q&A with the director Steve Richards from St. Luke’s in Kendall. We are hopeful that others involved with the film will be available for the Q&A from the various co-host sites.
