Enjoy this one-hour HD documentary on the remarkable history and perhaps even more remarkable survival of Miami's landmark Vizcaya. The documentary, VIZCAYA, narrated by actor and part-time Miami resident Andy Garcia is also available for purchase at Vizcaya's Café and Shop.
"This documentary about Vizcaya is the first of its kind.
Never before has an all-encompassing documentary about this National Historic Landmark been created," said producer Linda Corley.
The film details the incredible vision of James Deering in constructing Vizcaya and the astounding confluence of talent that made it possible. Deering was vice president of the International Harvester Company, which produced agricultural equipment for a worldwide market, and wintered at Vizcaya from 1916 until his death in 1925.
Overcoming immense obstacles to its building and ongoing challenges, Vizcaya has indelibly imprinted itself upon the history and culture of South Florida. Said Vizcaya Executive Director Joel Hoffman: "We are now the stewards of this local treasure and National Historic Landmark and pleased to have the opportunity to share the story of James Deering's extraordinary estate."
