Through the Lens: Knuckleball!
The late baseball Hall-of-Famer Willie Stargell once described the knuckleball as being like "throwing a butterfly with hiccups across the street into your neighbor's mailbox." It's a pitch so slow and so unpredictable that no one wants anything to do with it. Wednesday, we continue our Through the Lens documentary series with the directors of the film Knuckleball! Annie Sundberg and Ricki Stern join us to talk about the craft, tradition, and beauty of baseball as expressed through this one pitch.
RadioWest and the Utah Film Center will present a free screening of Knuckleball! on Thursday, August 16 at 7:00 p.m. at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in downtown Salt Lake City. For more information, here.
Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg have worked together on films including Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work, which won the US Documentary Prize for Best Editing at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and the Emmy nominated films The Devil Came On Horseback and The Trials of Darryl Hunt.
