Interesting Motion Picture Company Launches with Roberto Clemente Movie

Boston, MA (PRWEB) July 5, 2006

Film fund announces movie biography of Latino baseball legend and Hall of Famer.

Listen to how Simon & Shuster describes him:

“Anyone who saw Roberto Clemente, as he played with a beautiful fury, will never forget him. He was a work of art in a game too often defined by statistics. During his career with the Pittsburgh Pirates, he won four batting titles and led his team to championships in 1960 and 1971, hitting safely in all fourteen World Series games he played. His career ended with exactly three thousand hits, the magical number three thousand coming in his final at bat. Only he and the immortal Yankee Lou Gehrig are the only players to have the five year waiting period waived so they could be enshrined in the Hall of Fame immediately after their deaths. Roberto Clemente was that rare athlete who rose above sports to become a symbol of larger themes. Born near the cane breaks of rural Carolina, Puerto Rico, on August 18, 1934, at a time when there were no blacks or Puerto Ricans playing organized ball in the United States, Clemente went on to become the greatest Latino player in the major leagues. He was, in a sense, the Jackie Robinson of the Spanish-speaking world, a ball palyer of determination and grace, dignity and honor, who paved the way and set the highest standard for waves of Latino players who followed in his wake and who now dominate the game.”

Look for a La Boca Production on movie screens in winter, 2010. Or maybe earlier as a movie download.

The Interesting Motion Picture Company is a new film financing fund for independent motion pictures with budgets under ten million dollars. The fund’s founders provided financing for the 2005 release “Once Upon a Wedding” starring Esai Morales and Kuno Becker.
