The third installment of Georg Koszulinski’s Florida trilogy, Last Stop, Flamingo explores early visions of Florida, from the early 20th-century Koreshan utopian community, founded by Cyrus Teed in the swamplands of Florida, to the world’s largest planned subdivision—Golden Gate Estates—which projected a population of over 400,000 residents. Imagined landscapes give way to mythological creatures, from the Florida Skunk Ape to the mermaids who perform daily at Weeki Wachi Springs. Exactly 500 years after Ponce de Leon’s European discovery of Florida, Last Stop, Flamingo reflects on the many ways in which Florida’s landscapes have been irreversibly shaped by human desires. Watch the opening sequence here.
