On This Land Film

Posted under: Film

Ten thousand years of history unfold in this documentary film On This Land: The Charles Deering Estate.  This is the story of the 444-acre Deering Estate,  now a park and museum managed by Miami-Dade County, which encompasses sabre-tooth tigers and Paleo-Indians, Seminole burial grounds, pioneer homesteads, Henry Flagler’s railroad, and the legacy of wealthy conservationist and art collector Charles Deering.

Funded by the 100 Ladies of Deering, written by author and preservationist Becky Roper Matkov and produced by Emmy Award-winning director Carl Kesser, this half-hour long film is a project that involved extensive research, including trips to Chicago, Sarasota, Barcelona and Sitges, Spain and interviews with historians, archaeologists, a former governor and descendants of Charles Deering.
