REEL ABILITIES PALM BEACH FILM FESTIVAL
The largest national film festival celebrating the lives, stories and art of people with disabilities.
Director : Zaid H. Hamzeh, Documentary, 76 minutes, USA
HENRY O! tells the story of Enrique (Henry) Oliu, a man blind since birth, who has made his major league baseball dream come true. Calling upon his love for sports and an encyclopedic memory for facts and figures, Henry hears the crack of the bat and knows if it's a single, double, or home run; he listens for the ball singing into the catcher's mitt and knows if it's a curve ball, fastball, or changeup. Henry is the analyst for the strongest Hispanic station in Florida's Tampa Bay Market. At his side in the broadcast booth is his wife Deb, whispering in his ear up-to-the-minute stats. Open Captions
