The Last Resort


Miami’s South Beach, while now a popular party destination for college students, was once home to a very different population. The elderly, Jewish, New York expatriates who dominated South Beach in the 1970s are brought to light by young photographers Andy Sweet and Gary Monroe. In their decade-long photographic project, Sweet and Monroe captured the essence of this eccentric community through two very different artistic styles. Documentarians Dennis Scholl and Kareem Tabsch use these photos in conversation with some of Miami’s leading visual artists to celebrate the diverse history of this beachfront paradise. Discussion with co-director Dennis Scholl, moderated by Mitch Levine

Supported by Martin Horn
