Miami: Reflections on the River
Premieres Thursday, October 18 at 10:00pm

"Miami drinks deeply from its bounty and has grown along its shores."

Miami: Reflections on the River is an original WPBT half-hour documentary that explores the Miami River as Miami’s
benefactor and historian. Through high definition and archival footage and photos and interviews with the “old timers,”
the program traces the history of the river – from its mouth at Biscayne Bay upstream to its origins in the Everglades.
The story is told by long-time residents along the river, along with archaeologists and historians. In a lyrical narrative,
the film shares impressions of the past to uncover imprints remaining today.
