About:
A revealing revisitation of Jewish life in 1970s Miami.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Escaping the harsh winters of the Northeast for the perpetual sun of Florida, Miami Beach became a regular vacation destination for New York’s Jewish community after WWII. By the 1970s, many retired there, transforming Miami Beach into a veritable shtetl. Dennis Scholl and Kareem Tabsch’s film revisits this sunburned paradise through the ambitious and captivating work of Andy Sweet and Gary Monroe, two young photographers who captured this aging population for a decade, even as Miami transformed around them.
