KEY WEST: 200 YEARS OF HISTORY AND CULTURE
A first ever documentary on the history of Key West

Documentary Film by Michael J. Kirk

Casa Marina Key West, 1500 Reynolds Street

Doors at 7pm, screening begins at 7:30pm.

A 90-minute documentary film exploring the rich and valuable history of Key West, Florida has been produced. Starting with the Native American inhabitants, the film moves through the many years of trials and tribulations as well as the successes that built this incredible and important town. It helps us to understand how various cultures came together to work for the common good of the community and appreciate how those values of unity and respect are foundational to humanity today-a real microcosm of how our society can be One Human Family.

Founded in 1822, Key West (Cayo Hueso) has played a vital role in American history and global history. The story of this town/community is truly indelible as are the great people, who against all odds built this Island paradise for us to enjoy today. The narrative of the film will be told using impactful and colorful interviews by historians and people who have spent many years in Key West and, in some cases, multiple generations.

These stories are woven together through historical events and periods. The producers of the film have been given access to invaluable historic archives that are rarely seen, which will add a sense of ‘wow’ to the story. Incredible graphics and animation will move the film along to help all ages truly appreciate and understand this story.
