1000 to 1: The Cory Weissman StoryDavid Henrie (Wizards of Waverly Place) plays the lead in 1,000 to 1: The Cory Weissman Story, the true story of a young basketball player who suffered a catastrophic stroke as a freshman at Gettysburg College but through determination and an indomitable spirit returned to the court for one remarkable moment in the last game of his senior year. The chances of him surviving the stroke at all were bleak. The odds of him returning to the court were astronomical. Multiple Emmy nominee Beau Bridges (Without Warning: The James Brady Story, The Descendants) stars as the Gettysburg College basketball coach George Petrie and Jean Louisa Kelly (Mr. Holland's Opus, Yes, Dear) plays Cory's mother Tina, a physical therapist who became her son's partner in a long recovery.
Legendary trumpet player and six-time Grammy Award winner Arturo Sandoval, who won an Emmy for the score to the HBO film of his own life story, For Love or Country (starring Andy Garcia), composed and recorded the score for the film.
Following screening, Q&A with James Mathers (cinematographer) and Bob Burris (producer & writer), both alums of the CSUN CTVA program.
