Lost Son of Havana
Jonathan Hock, 2009, 102 minutes
At the age of 67, Luis Tiant has come back to Cuba, the island he had left at age 20 for a trip he thought would last a month and became nearly a half‐century. But is this still home? What is home for an exile that becomes a star in his new land, leaving former teammates to play for their government and country in isolation and poverty? What is home for a man who never had a sister or brother and whose parents are dead? Where can he go to sort out the guilt and the glory? And is it too late?
Winner “Best Film 2009” at the Baseball Film Festival.
