Miami street renamed Moonlight Way after Oscar-winning film

19

April

A surprise Best Picture win at the Academy Awards has culminated in a street in Miami's Liberty City being renamed Moonlight Way after the Miami-set film Moonlight, the Miami Herald reports.

The film's creators Barry Jenkins and Tarell Alvin McCraney grew up in the Liberty City neighborhood. 

Miami-Dade commissioner Audrey Edmonson, who also grew up in the area, told the Herald, "What this movie really did is depict how people grow up here in the inner city."

The resolution officially renamed six blocks of Northwest 22nd Avenue.
