The Last Out

Sami Khan & Michael Gassert | Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, US, Mexico, Honduras, Nicaragua, Guatemala | 84

Three young Cuban baseball players leave their families and risk exile to train in Central America and chase their dreams of playing in the Major Leagues. Filmed over more than four years, The Last Out tells the very human story of people caught between countries who want nothing more than to make a better life for their families.

The Last Out was the recipient of the 2019 Rooftop Films and Irving Harvey Feature Film Color Correction Grant.
