Henry O!
Featuring Enrique "Henry" Oliu from "Henry O!"


A one hour film with a post screening discussion with the film star! The star of this film, Enrique Oliu, will speak after the screening. Available at no charge to show in your school or at a theater

Enrique, a man blind since birth, hears the crack of the bat and knows if it's a single, double, or home run; he listens for the ball singing into the catcher's mitt and knows if it's a curveball, fastball, or changeup. He also happens to be the analyst for Spanish-speaking radio during the Tampa Bay Rays games.

The Perfect Turnover

The Perfect Turnover

A Special Program for Houston Teens

The Perfect Turnover: A high school senior with a developmental disability gets a once in a lifetime chance when his basketball coach puts him in to the game. After missing many shots, and giving up hope of ever making a basket, a player from the rival team passes the ball to him. What happens next changes Mitchell and Jonathan's lives forever.

Houston area teens are invited to see clips from the film "The Perfect Turnover" (see a trailer at www.theperfectturnover.com) and have a conversation, led by an educator and with the star of the film, Mitchell Marcus, and a former teammate of Mitchell's, about how his experience can relate to us all.

If you would like to have the program (film clips and/or teacher curriculum) made available to your school, contact: Jess Faerman or call 713-667-9336.
