Dennis Scholl, Kareem Tabsch & Brett Sokol present 'Shtetl in the Sun' & 'The Last Resort' at The Coral Gables Art Cinema, FL
Saturday, February 16 at 7PM, Coral Gables Art Cinema presents a screening of the documentary film The Last Resort, followed by a talk and a signing of the companion photography book, Shtetl in the Sun: Andy Sweet's South Beach 1977–1980.
An uncannily revealing portrait of American photographers Andy Sweet and Gary Monroe, and the vibrant community of Jewish retirees they obsessively focused their camera’s lens on in the sunburned paradise of 1970s Miami Beach.
“A photographer's paradise… a story that’s fascinating, poignant.”
—The New York Times
“This charming documentary—like Miami itself—has a little bit of everything: Old Jews, Art Deco architecture, serious beach style, rival artists, and a dash of queerness for good measure.”
“Poignantly nostalgic… an evocative portrait of a now-bygone era.”
—The Hollywood Reporter
