So Flo Floods is the new feature documentary film from TheoEco about how sea level rise and climate change are affecting South Florida–past, present, and future.

Miami Beach is ground zero in the USA for Sea Level Rise (SLR), investing hundreds of millions of dollars to install pumps and other infrastructure to handle “King Tide” flooding and fight back the most immediate effects of global warming.

But there is a much bigger story to be told of floods in South Florida including past and future floods. From Lake Okeechobee, to Stuart, to Belle Glade, to the Everglades, So Flo Floods tells the story of these floods and the issues surrounding where the region is going and what it will need to confront if SLR continues as anticipated.

Miami Beach Senior High STEAM Project

We are actively pursuing several ways to use the film 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. We will be announcing the winner at the premiere.

Miami Beach Senior High and the CEC Connection

TheoEco and Beach High are new partners through our mutual relationship with the Council for Educational Change Executive Pass Program (changeeducation.org) which brings together schools and businesses to work together for schools.
