Indian Baseball is Subject of New Documentary
Producer/director and longtime Arts Global collaborator Mirra Bank is nearing completion on her latest film, The Only Real Game, and the foundation is pleased to assist in accessing finishing funds for this first-ever feature documentary. The film focuses on an unknown, turbulent and vivid corner of India where the Great American Game, namely baseball, is, for many, the only real game.
As described by the filmmakers, The Only Real Game is a fighters’ and dreamers’ story about how deeply baseball can affect a strife-torn region -- a surprising story that brings us to the heart of the Great American Game. The film unfolds in two worlds: America, where fans believe that baseball can move mountains, and Manipur, an impoverished, embattled corner of northeast India, where a proud and athletic people have decided that ‘home’ means home plate. And getting there means everything.
