We are just back from Jubal Studio in Kathmandu where we edited our original 73-minute version of So FLo FLoods to a snappier 56-minute version to satisfy the desires of museums, schools, and community centers for a quicker rendering.
While it seemed impossible to cut a quarter of the film it turns out that we like it just fine – and if it enables more people to see it, we’re obviously good with that. The film’s treatment of South Florida’s flooding past, present, and future, are all intact as are the interviews (though trimmed a bit) with Professors Wanless and Weisskoff from the University of Miami, Paul George from HistoryMiami, Jacqui Thurlow-Lippisch from the SFWMD, author Robert Mykle, and the others.
We are currently scheduling new screenings of the film for Spring and Summer and are set to premiere the new version on April 3rd on Miami Beach at the So FLo FLoods Competition Awards Ceremony at Miami Beach Senior High. Be on the lookout for more information as we get closer to the event.

So FLo FLoods Competition for Miami Beach Senior High
TheoEco is focused on economic and ecological entanglements people and regions find themselves in internationally. Miami Beach High kids have been - and are – immersed in such an entanglement like nowhere else on the planet. So, they have a unique appreciation for the opportunities and challenges life in South Florida holds. For more about the competition click here.
TheoEco and Beach High are partners through the Council for Educational Change Executive Pass Program (changeeducation.org) which brings together schools and businesses to work together for schools.
We are proud to have Pearl Benefits as lead sponsor of the event.
