The opening gala of the 2014 Fort Myers Film Festival kicks off March 19 with film events ongoing through March 23. Among the works that will highlighted in the five-day event is a film titled, “Last Stop, Flamingo,” by Southwest Florida native Georg Koszulinski. It’s the last in a trilogy of films documenting some of Florida’s strange or little-known history.
Previous films in the series include “Cracker Crazy” (2007) and “Immokalee U.S.A.,” (2008). WGCU’s John Davis recently caught up with Koszulinski for a look at how the documentaries can challenge our conceptions of history and how they grapple with the filmmaker’s own relationship with his former home.
