Road to the Big Leagues - Trailer
This feature-length documentary was directed by Jared Goodman and created for ESPN Deportes. The film features superstars David Ortiz and Vladimir Guerrero but its real focus is on the young Dominican players who dream of making it to the Big Leagues like their heroes. It's a Hoop Dreams-like story that CBS's Dan Roche called "a must-have film if you are a fan of baseball."
Captive Beauty - Trailer
Captive Beauty is a feature-length documentary from director Jared Goodman about four female inmates raised on the streets of Medellin, Colombia. Jailed for murder, kidnapping, revolution, and con-artistry, these women are brought together by a surreal beauty pageant held inside the prison walls. Combining intimate pageant footage from inside the prison, with home videos, family photos, and provocative interviews with their friends, families, and enemies, Captive Beauty brings these women's stories to life. It is a tale both universal and entirely unique, sexy and brutal, where themes of innocence and femininity are turned on their heads and the criminal, for a day, becomes a queen.
