Cargo Film & Releasing, the NYC-based documentary film sales agent, is excited to announce the first trailer for They Call Me Dr. Miami directed by Jean-Simon Chartier (Playing​ Hard)​. The film will have its world premiere at the Miami International Film Festival taking place from March 6-15.

Dr. Michael Salzhauer a.k.a. Dr. Miami is the most famous plastic surgeon in America, and the first doctor to livestream graphic tummy tucks and breast augmentations to his over two million followers on Snapchat – all with the enthusiastic consent of his patients. Through Dr. Miami’s “reality” operating theater, we enter the hotbed of body modification culture, where butt lifts have increased over 250 percent just since 2015, and now Salzhauer’s patient waiting list is currently two years long.

We witness how Salzhauer grapples with the reality of selfie culture, the controversy his videos stir up, his status as a social media superstar, and how he fights to balance this with being a devoted husband, a father of five, and a conservative Orthodox Jew who observes the Sabbath. The golden age of “sharing” and social media has taken us to places as a society we never imagined, and no one is immune to this relentless pursuit of social media fame, even when lives hang in the balance.  A Documentary Channel Production.
