Ballplayer: Pelotero
Ross Finkel, Trevor Martin and Jon Paley, 2011, 73 min.
For 16-year-old Dominican baseball players such as Miguel Angel and Jean Carlos, the only real chance to escape crushing poverty comes on July 2nd, the day they become eligible to sign professional baseball contracts. Pelotero
provides an intimate portrait of two prospects as they navigate the calculating, mercenary and often corrupt elements that surround Major League Baseball's recruitment of the Island's top talent. Filmmakers Ross Finkel, Trevor Martin and Jonathan Paley take you inside this never before seen world for an up close and personal look at the cost
of the American dream.  Executive produced by former ballplayer and Red Sox Manager Bobby Valentine.

"What gives 'Pelotero' its edge is a nexus of corruption, exploitation and betrayal that transforms this well-shot, cannily edited item to an engrossing expose."  -Variety.

Friday, July 13th: Post-screening Q&A with Co-Director Ross Finkel

Saturday, July 14th: Post-screening Q&A with Co-Directors Ross Finkel and Trevor Martin, followed by a reception.
