Brothers in Exile
Tuesday, August 28th
Major League Baseball has been transformed by the influx of Cuban players such as Aroldis Chapman, Yasiel Puig and Jose Abreu. But a special debt of gratitude is owed to two half-brothers, whose courage two decades ago paved the way for their stardom. Brothers in Exile tells the incredible story of Livan and Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez, who risked their lives to get off the island.
The film program at the Muhammad Ali Center provides a space where community, education, and film meet. We collaborate with individuals, local organizations, and educational institutions to offer accessible experiences and develop meaningful conversations around issues impacting our community. We present the best in independent, international, and classic cinema, as well as screenings that enhance our temporary exhibits and celebrate our permanent collection.
In 2018, we're working with ESPN Films to screen a selection from their award-winning 30 for 30 film series. A complete list of upcoming films here.
