Under this agreement, Fuego Entertainment will have the exclusive right to market, distribute, and sell the film in all formats for the following territories: Central and South America, the Caribbean, Europe, and Asia. Fuego has non-exclusive rights for the U.S. since the film is already being distributed to various media outlets. Financial terms for this acquisition were not disclosed.
Cuba many only be 90 miles from the United States, but politics has created a much greater chasm. In pre-revolution Cuba, Fidel Castro aspired to play professional baseball in the United States. In The Bases are Loaded, Baseball Hall of Fame legend Monte Irvin returns to Cuba to reunite with former teammate and Cuban baseball icon Connie Marrero after a 50-year separation. The journey reveals the cultural, social, and political complexities of Cuban baseball and America’s relationship with the island nation, while highlighting a unique friendship. The film offers a unique opportunity to experience Cuba and its thriving baseball culture, the beautiful, romantic, and electric streets of Havana, and the music, the beating heart of the Cuban people.
“A touching look at the power of America’s pastime for anyone who appreciates baseballs remarkable history and the warmth of the Cuban people,” -- Larry Mantle, Host of Air Talk on NPR.
“We continue to expand our horizons and increase Fuego’s catalog by aggressively seeking and acquiring great music, film, and video content that we feel will be successfully received by the general audience,” stated Hugo Cancio, CEO of Fuego Entertainment, Inc.
