Call For Photos & Video: ESPN Documentary On Felipe Lopez

Hock Films is making a documentary for ESPN on Felipe Lopez that will be premiering in 2019. As part of Felipe’s story, they will be discussing the story of the Dominican community in Washington Heights during the 1980s and 90s. They are hoping that some of our readers will be interested in participating by providing videos/home movies or photos during that time period so they can accurately represent the community, the neighborhood and the people. They are looking to find home movies or photos that people may have filmed while attending Felipe’s high school games playing for Rice, so that they can convey a real sense of how supportive the Dominican community was of him from the onset of his career. Please reach out to Matt Fisher, the researcher on the project, at if you are able to help contribute materials, or have suggestions on local organizations, photographers, filmmakers or other individuals to reach out to.
