Havana Curveball
Seattle premiere, with filmmaker in attendance!
Co-presented with the Seattle Latino Film Festival
Saturday, January 24, 5 pm
Monday,  January 26 at 7pm
(Marcia Jarmel & Ken Schneider, USA, 2014, live action, 60 min)
Ages 11+. In English and Spanish, with English subtitles.

This film is a documentary about Mica, a young teen. He's enthusiastic. Idealistic. Dreaming baseball. At 13, he is studying for his Bar Mitzvah, the Jewish coming-of-age rite. Imagining himself a savior of sorts, he launches a grand plan to send baseballs to Cuba, a country with a mysterious pull. He knows only that Cubans are poor and love baseball, and that Cuba was the place where his grandpa received refuge during the Holocaust. On a hunch, his award-winning filmmaker parents pick up their camera. They know the U.S. embargo with Cuba will throw him a curveball.
Screens with: Falling Planes (Mario Piredda, Cuba, 2012, live action, 12 min)
Notes to parents: This is a film about what happens when a teenager discovers how difficult it can be to do a simple good deed. As might be expected, a few coarse words are uttered during the film. Falling Planes, screening before the film, also has a swear word.
