White Elephant Documentary

This morning’s Herald features an article on the faded Miami Stadium. Really, it was a preview on the groundbreaking documentary film White Elephant: What Is There to Save?

Just by reading the article and viewing the preview on the film’s website, I can sense that the documentary is inspired, stylistic, and deeply informed. The story is of ambition and broken dreams. A Cuban exile maverick millionaire decides to gamble his fortune on a vision: to lure professional baseball to Miami.

It debuts this Saturday at 8:00 P.M. at the Tower Theater (1508 S.W. 8th Street) in Little Havana. Admission is free.

    Professional baseball has been played in Greater Miami, dating back to 1927. Miami Stadium was, indeed, a very important part of that history.

    My husband played in Old Miami stadium. Is this documentary available for sale? I would love to give it to him. He enjoyed the film so much and remembered many of the old players pictured. He was also mentioned in this film. Thank you.

    I just saw this on WLRN (March, 2009) and was captivated. I spent many hours on Saturday afternoons in the west bleachers (lot of free tix given away in those days). I also MUST have a copy. any idea of where to find one???
