Where did you watch this movie?

Intrigued by the small apartments, low-cost of living, sunny weather, and thriving cultural life, aging Jews came to Miami Beach in the thousands seeking refuge from the Northeast's brutal winters. By the 1970's, these former New Yorkers were turning from seasonal visitors to year-round residents, all the while making Miami Beach home to a population that was primarily over 70 and overwhelmingly Jewish. Young photographers Andy Sweet and Gary Monroe embarked upon an ambitious 10-year project to document the aging population living in the sunburned paradise of 1970's Miami Beach and into the changing, turbulent 1980's. Working in different styles and approaches they captured the end of an era through engrossing black and white images by Monroe juxtaposed with Sweet's captivating candy-hued color photos. The result is one of the most fascinating photographic documentation's of a community ever caught on film.
