WHAT IS GIGANTE?


Gigante is an upcoming, feature-length documentary about Andrés “Yungo” Torres-- a grateful, perseverant man with ADHD who happens to be the center-fielder for the San Francisco Giants. Yungo came from humble means, found rejection, mockery, and disappointment, and struggled 10 years in the minors before becoming a major league baseball player.


He has developed strategies and support systems that helped him to become a key player in the Giants' 2010 World Series win. His story inspires hope and motivates others to embrace their own challenges and never give up on their dreams.



Director: Chusy Haney-Jardine (Sundance Award-Winning Director)
