Branca's Pitch follows 85 year-old former Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher Ralph Branca as he writes his autobiography A Moment In Time with the philosophical and flamboyant ghostwriter, David Ritz. Ralph became infamous for losing the 1951 National League pennant to the New York Giants by giving up the dramatic "Shot Heard 'Round the World" home run to Bobby Thomson. Despite being branded a scapegoat for the rest of his life Ralph kept secret for 50 years about that fateful game and the 1951 Giants team. The film is a portrait of an aging man bent on righting his legacy because for 60 years he has viewed himself as a winner despite a public image as the ultimate loser.

Charge captures a pivotal moment in motor sport history: the dawn of the zero-emissions racing era. It came on June 12th 2009, the day of the world’s first zero-emissions motorcycle grand prix. The race took place on the Isle of Man TT course, the most demanding and deadly circuit on the planet. The film begins in early 2009 amid the hectic preparations for the race and concludes over a year later at the 2010 TT Zero. The second race sees a huge leap in performance – proof that racing really does improve the breed and that maniacs on motorcycles can be a force for global good. We follow the fortunes of several teams in the run-up to the 2009 race and on their return in 2010, from swaggering US hotshots MotoCzysz to shoestring Anglo-Indian contenders Team Agni and local heroes ManTTx Racing. Charge is the dramatic and highly entertaining inside story of an unlikely group of pioneers – obsessed visionaries, ambitious businessmen, new-tech eccentrics, government ministers and hardcore racers – from as far afield as India, the USA, Germany and Britain. It’s a human story as well as a technological one: the teams’ hopes for personal glory and commercial success ride on their green machines. It’s about the dream of a clean, green world. It’s about the dream of winning.
