  • 93 miles

    Noah Canavan / Emerging Filmmakers / United States / 17 mins

    93 Miles tells the story of Miguel, a fictional baseball prodigy, whose journey is inspired by the many Cuban players who defected from Cuba prior to 2014. These young men made the difficult choice to leave the island, believing they could never return to see their loved ones. 93 Miles isn’t about the disappointment of leaving everything behind; this story is about the optimism in the future. Miguel’s story is an introspective observation about his opportunity and his decision. Over the course of this journey, you see both Miguel and our national pastime objectified and exploited at the hands of a greedy few.
