Recounting the high-profile doping scandal that rocked Major League Baseball, director Billy Corben (COCAINE COWBOYS) takes us into the surreal Miami underworld that provided performance-enhancing drugs to Alex Rodriguez, Manny Ramirez and other star players.

Q&A SCHEDULE:
• Friday, March 29: Film subject Porter Fischer and producer Alfred Spellman will participate in a post-film Q&A after the 8:35pm screening.

• Saturday, March 30: Director Billy Corben and film subject Porter Fischer will participate in a post-film Q&A after the 8:35pm screening

• Sunday, March 31: Producer Alfred Spellman will participate in a post-film Q&A after the 4:25pm screening with film critic Hans Morgenstern.

They say South Florida is a sunny place for shady people and this is certainly true of steroid peddler Anthony Bosch and his most notorious client, Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees. While Bosch’s medical credentials may be lacking, his storytelling skills are first rate as he hilariously details the rise and fall of his health clinic, including mob connections, financial chicanery, his cocaine habit, and Rodriguez’s eccentric behavior.

The documentary plays like a madcap Floridian crime comedy in the vein of Elmore Leonard or the Coen Brothers while it raises serious questions about the ethics of professional sports. Powerful interests would be happy to let this story slip from memory, but SCREWBALL makes it unforgettable.

“An impudently entertaining documentary that suggests what might result if the Monty Python troupe were given carte blanche to produce an investigative report for 60 Minutes.”
– VARIETY

“Covers the doping scandal without fear or favor, interested in the kinds of bit players behind the headlines whose stories are often way more interesting than the athletes that have fallen from grace.”
– FILM STAGE

“More entertaining than a dozen Major League Baseball games stacked on top of one another, Billy Corben’s doc looking at the sport’s doping scandal of 2013 is a ‘roided-out riot.”
