Sunday evening we were treated to a
broadcast on the local PBS-WPBT station of...

Where Neon Goes to Die:

"A look at Yiddish culture in Miami Beach."
Directed by David Weintraub.

"For over sixty years, Miami Beach flourished with half a dozen Yiddish theatres, scores of choruses and folksinger groups, literary activity, and more. Then one day it vanished in a fog of disco lights."

+ I enjoyed some of this film, but was very offended by the intensely morbid tone of the theme. Isn't possible to engage in some nostalgia without the morbidity?

This film is an expression of Mr Weintraub's perspective and it is his personal memoir. I don't want to harshly criticize someone else's memories.
