Tribeca and ESPN Films documentary Boys of Summer, directed by Keith Aumont, stars Vernon Isabella and the Curaçao All-Star Team. The documentary film won the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the 2010 NY International Latino Film Festival last summer.

This film's synopsis reads:

On a tiny Caribbean island of Curaçao, they take their Little League® Baseball very seriously. So seriously, in fact, that Manager Vernon Isabella has sent his Little League All-Stars to the Little League World Series for an unprecedented seven consecutive years. However, in the summer of 2008, the boys are faced with new challenges that could jeopardize their eighth chance at the championship. They must overcome injuries, team bickering and Puerto Rican Little League® players who’ve already matured – some have already started to grow mustaches – in order to do their team, manager, and nation proud.

The frustrated coaching staff tries everything to bring the team together, only to have the team finally unite to represent their country after a pep talk from Curaçao’s Prime Minister herself.

Though at its core, BOYS OF SUMMER is a film about baseball as a universally beloved pastime, the film is also about much more. It's about children carrying the privilege and burden of a nation's pride. It's about athletes competing at the highest level and having the time of their lives. And it’s about the unexpected camaraderie that develops between these boys as they do what they love.
