The Federated Jewish Charities of Charleston's free fall film festival takes on a baseball theme.
Two films will be shown Sunday at the Culture Center Theater at the state Capitol.
First up, at 4 p.m., is "Holy Land Hardball," an 80-minute documentary about a bagel maker's dream to bring the American pastime to the Middle East. Boston baker Larry Baras' idea to create an Israeli baseball league in the summer of 2007 was met with everything from hostility to incredulity — but he did it anyway, with funny results.
The second film, at 5:30 p.m., is "Jews and Baseball: An American Love Story," a 90-minute documentary about Jewish Major League baseball players and the meaning baseball played in the lives of American Jews. The film is narrated by Dustin Hoffman.
Both films are free and open to the public.
