Stories From The Overseas Highway

Stories_from_the_Overseas_Highway.jpg

Experience the stunning beauty of the Florida Keys and meet a colorful cast of off-beat characters in this half-hour documentary about an unforgettable road trip on “the highway that goes to sea.” Filmmaker Tim Long  heads off the mainland down US Highway One from Key Largo to Key West in search of the people who personify the Florida Keys’ unique, funky, laid-back island culture.

Believe it or not, Florida has only one “All-American Road.” Taking a drive down the Overseas Highway is a showcase of all things truly Americana, and filmmaker Tim Long knows this all too well. Past projects, including Bohemia in the Tropics, A Century in the Sun and Escape to Dreamland, have explored Key West, the making of modern Florida, and the history of the Tamiami Trail, respectively.

Long's latest work 'Stories from the Overseas Highway'   captures the heart of Keys culture once again .  The documentary airs on  Saturday, August 24 at  7 p.m. on WLRN TV.
