Information

The act of passing through a tunnel is often interpreted as a birth or rebirth. Passage through the proverbial "tunnel of light" is associated with a rebirth into paradise. The emigration of the retiring elderly, from their cold, drab, northern homelands to an anticipated Floridian paradise is a comparable journey. Orangeland is a metaphor for the Florida that is not advertised in travel brochures or experienced by tourists visiting attractions, beaches and theme parks. It represents the Florida of the exploited and their exploiters, the Florida of human predators and prey. Orangeland examines the situations of the desperate, con-artists, feeble-minded, and elderly as they attempt to navigate the merciless backwaters of a peninsula that lures the gullible with the promise of a sunny, carefree, tropical paradise.
