Have you ever heard of Kevin Laue?

It's a shame if you haven't — he's a major inspiration in the world, especially for those who might have to overcome adversity while still having a passion for sports!

He's getting a documentary, and Cinipix has taken US rights to the film directed by Franklin Martin. It's called Long Shot, and people describe it as “Blindside and Soul Surfer meets Hoop Dreams.”

You can't really go wrong with that combo!

At 6’11″, Kevin was born with a left arm that ended at the elbow. This did not stop him from working hard and earning his spot to play center on scholarship for Manhattan College’s Division I squad!

He's pretty unbelievable, and totally worthy of a major documentary!

    Saw this movie Saturday night in NorCal (Livermore) at The Vine. This is a genuine, real, inspiring story! There are so many positive angles to this movie. I loved a youth coach who helped him (Coach McNight), his high school coach, and even a less-than-warm hard-nosed coach. This is youth, adversity, hard work, perseverance, and the world of hard knocks rolled into one. Kevin himself, who answered questions himself, was humble… with a touch of cockiness. He was so kind, gentle, and conversant when signing a basketball a young movie goer brought to the movie! This is why we love independent movies.
