THE ROAD TO CUBA IS PAVED WITH GOOD INTENTIONS…

Havana Curveball is the award-winning, heart-warming, coming-of-age documentary about Cuba, baseball, and a Bar Mitzvah.

It follows an ordinary American teenager who faces extraordinary challenges when he sets his heart on donating equipment to young Cuban baseball players-an act of thanks to the country that gave his grandfather refuge during the Holocaust.

Intimately drawn, the film takes viewers on a deeply felt journey that shows just how complicated it is to “do good” in the world.

HAVANA CURVEBALL is running for 4 days, February8th – 12, at San Francisco’s Vogue Theater, closing out the Hot Stove Baseball Film and Music Festival on February 8th at 5 pm, and screening the next three nights at 5 & 7 pm.

Nightly special guests:
  • Bay Area world of Baseball (Sun. & Mon),
  • World Series Trophy Photo Op and Q & A with KNBR baseball radio personality, Marty Lurie (Sun.) 
  • Youth Activism (Tue.),
