Fast Eddie and the Boys

A documentary by Jerome Liebling, Roger Sherman and Buddy Squires. Photography historian Dr. Estelle Jussim ranks Liebling’s portraits of Miami Beach handball players as “his most consistently noble achievement.” This short film brings those timeless photographs to life. Made in collaboration with two of Liebling's former students at Hampshire College, it captures "Fast Eddie" Libman and his gang of seventy-something Miami Beach cohorts playing for bragging rights on the concrete handball courts of Flamingo Park.
