The Barry Epstein Show, often referred to as South Florida’s “Larry King Live,” because of it’s similar format, is a staple in South Florida with over 32,0000 viewers.
The book “Sins of South Beach” is Alex Daoud’s portrait of the city he led for three terms as mayor during the anything-goes ’80s – when “cocaine cowboys” slaughtered each other in bloody drug wars and refugees from the Mariel Boatlift, many released by Fidel Castro from his worst jails and insane asylums, terrorized the predominately elderly Jewish population of Miami Beach. It’s the story of a city’s renaissance and the crime and corruption, which fueled it. Daoud was a driving force behind the rebirth of the city.
“Sins of South Beach” has been acquired for cinematic release by Cinepro Pictures. Internationally renowned filmmaker Philippe Martinez will produce the movie. His credits include over 30 films including Modigliani starring Andy Garcia. The world premier of the movie will be in South Beach.
