More than 100 guests attended a special premiere of a one hour documentary, titled Miami Beach: 100 Years of Making Waves, at the Miami Design Preservation League on Miami Beach.
The event on Wednesday, July 29, premiered the film that was aired on WPBTTV on Monday, Aug. 3, at 9 p.m. Produced and directed by Emmy winner Robyn Symon and hosted by author and adventurer Charles J. Kropke, the documentary traces the colorful history of Miami Beach back as far as the mid-1800s.
“What started out largely as swampland is today one of the hottest destinations in the world,” Kropke said. “From explorers to land barons, gangsters, fashion models and celebrities, this little seaside jewel, with its signature Art Deco backdrop, has weathered many waves of change.”
Miami Beach: 100 Years of Making Waves seamlessly weaves rare historical footage and interviews with acclaimed local historians, Art Deco preservationists, politicians and civic leaders who guide viewers through the many booms and busts during the city’s colorful history.
