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.
Century in the Sun airs on WLRN Channel 17 Tuesday, May 28 at 8 p.m.
