About “The Last Resort”:
Long before Art Deco was a movement and prior to the arrival of the youth culture of MTV and Miami Vice, South Beach was home to the largest cluster of Jewish retirees in the country. Intrigued by the small apartments, low-cost of living, sunny weather, and thriving cultural life, they came in the thousands seeking refuge from the Northeast’s brutal winters. In The Last Resort, viewers embark on a journey to the iconic Miami Beach of yesterday through the lens of young photographers Andy Sweet and Gary Monroe, resulting in one of the most fascinating photographic documentations of a community ever caught on film.
