Former Red Sox Pitcher Tiant Speaks at Americas Forum

Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Luis Tiant responds to a question after the April 7 screening of “Lost Son of Havana,” a 2009 film about his first return to his native Cuba in 46 years. Tiant and filmmaker Jonathan Hock participated in the Center for the Americas’ 2011 Americas Forum, held on campus April 7 and 8.

Tiant and Hock address the audience at the Center for the Arts Hall. The forum, “Sports Documentary Filmmakers in the Americas: The Politics of Access,” also featured a screening of “The Two Escobars,” by Jeffery and Michael Zimbalist ‘02, about drugs power and soccer in Colombia.
