Description
This film begins with re-creation of the 1928 hurricane that tore apart the west coast of south Florida and killed over 2,000 people. It continues with details on the development of flood control measures as drought, fires, and agriculture became problems in water control. It shows the head of the Flood Control District justifying measures taken and programs underway. Viewers see lab work, fieldwork, water hyacinth research, and the planting of mangrove seedlings by dropping them from a helicopter. The film tells how careful the Flood Control District is in what it does. It shows their computer system and how efficient it will be. Viewers also see cloud seeding by the federal government. Produced by Key Productions; sponsored by Central and Southern Florida Flood Control District.

Description
Four color slides. In 1928, a hurricane struck South Florida, and kiled thousands. Hardest hit were areas such as Moore Haven and Belle Glade. The Folk Arts in Education Project in Palm Beach County was a joint venture between the Palm Beach County School System and the Florida Folklife Program. It was conducted between 1986 and 1987 by folklorist Jan Rosenberg with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. The goal was to impart an appreciation of multi-ethnic traditions and provide a sense of place to the mobile student population. The project focused on the Florida Studies component for fourth grade students. The project consisted of field research to identify local traditions and folk artists, a series of five two-day seminars to acquaint teachers with the use of folklore and folk arts, in-school programs conducted by a folklorist and traditionalist, which included visits by local folk artists. In total, the project involved 15 schools with 779 students.

Description
This film gives a detailed overview of south Florida's sugarcane industry as a celebration of the "good country life" of the farmer. It was shot entirely in the Lake Okeechobee area. The film details sugarcane production in all of its phases: from planting, field burning, harvesting and milling, to loading the refined sugar into barges for shipment. It also covers the Spanish introduction of the cane plant into Florida in the 1500s, South Florida's early sugarcane industry, and the great hurricane of 1928. Several state and federal experts make short testimonials on sugarcane and associated industries. Produced by Cinema East Miami and the Florida Sugar Cane League.
