Century In The Sun
CENTURY IN THE SUN is the story of how Standard Oil magnate Henry Flagler comes to Florida in the late 1800s, builds a railroad and hotel empire on the last American frontier, and launches a population boom that lasts a hundred years.
The film traces Flagler’s impact on Florida through the 20th century, as it becomes the fastest - growing state in the U.S.
The film explores the consequences -- both intended and unintended -- of Flagler’s stunning success in launching the boom that drove Florida’s economy, until it was stopped in its tracks by the Great Recession.
