MIAMI SCANDAL ON FILM
"Although I no longer live in Miami, a city famous for its beaches, nightlife, diversity and scandals, I can't quite get the "Magic City" out of my system just yet.
To satisfy my recent Miami craving, I drove to The Wolfsonian-FIU on South Beach this weekend to screen my friends' documentary, Miami Noir: The Arthur E. Teele Story."
