Independent Film “Bleacher Boys” to be Shown at APSU
Posted By Clarksville Online News Staff On Monday, March 29, 2010 @ 8:45 pm In Events | No Comments
The Austin Peay State University Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts, in partnership with the Customs House Museum, will present the independent documentary film “Bleacher Boys” at 2 p.m., April 3 in the Clement Auditorium on the APSU campus. Following the film, audience members will be able to ask questions of the director, Karen Hunter. This event, which is part of The Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers, is free for Austin Peay students and the general public.
“Bleacher Boys” is a story of five men who shared a common dream as boys: the dream of growing up and playing Major League Baseball. Five men, each of whose dreams were dashed at an early age due to blindness. Five men, whose stories differ in detail, yet share that one common element. Their stories unfold in chapters like the innings of a baseball game with them sitting in the bleachers. Each inning becomes a chapter from their lives as they relate the hardships of overcoming the painful reality of never seeing again, to the struggle to create a new dream. All are masterful storytellers whose tales become easy for us to identify with and whose perseverance we can admire.
The lineup includes:
