the carl erskine story

a film by Ted Green

USA, 91 mins.

Trailer and Website:

Carl Erskine is an Indiana icon, the last of the Brooklyn Dodgers' "Boys of Summer," and one of the great human rights ambassadors of our time. "He is living a perfect game," legendary sportscaster Vin Scully said of Erskine. This documentary celebrates his life and legacy, with amazing personal interviews with the Hoosier hero and his family and friends. Special Olympics Indiana is proud to partner with award-winning filmmaker Ted Green in developing the Erskine Personal Impact Curriculum (EPIC), presented by Duke Energy — a set of educational materials for elementary, middle, and high school students to be released in Fall 2022 in conjunction with the film. This unique, adaptable curriculum builds upon the success of our Unified Champion Schools® and Champions Together initiatives to promote Social and Emotional Learning for every age level, using stories and experiences from Carl’s life to create lessons and activities with themes including empowerment, friendship, inclusion, and leadership.
