The documentary parent, Christine Schomer wrote and produced is opening next week at the IFC Center on 6th Ave and W. 3rd St. for 2 weeks. It’s about the knuckleball, and it stars RA Dickey of the New York Mets. It’s a baseball movie, but it’s also about the integrity and passion of the 6 living men who have thrown the knuckleball in their baseball careers, and so far it’s been popular with non-baseball fans too. It’s appropriate for kids over 6.
There is a premiere next Thursday and a free screening for students from Children’s Aid Society, New York Cares, RBI Harlem, the YMCA and the Bronx Charter School for Excellence. Christine has 10 free tickets if there are any Children’s School kids who would like to attend the 4:30 screening. The film is 90 minutes, and will be followed by a Q&A with knuckleballers RA Dickey, Tim Wakefield and Hall-of-Famer Phil Niekro, as well as the 2 directors, Ricki Sundberg and Annie Stern.
If anyone would like to take advantage of the free tickets, they can contact Christine directly: firstname.lastname@example.org.
First come, first served!
Here’s the trailer for the film:
Thanks, Chris Schomer
