AuthorHouse Title "Mustang Miracle" Hits American Theaters As "The Long Game" On April 12th

A self-published author's passion project tees off on a nationwide journey.

Bloomington, Indiana – This April, moviegoers will witness an inspiring underdog story based on a true account when "The Long Game" arrives in theaters nationwide. The film, directed by Julio Quintana, is an adaptation of the self-published book, "Mustang Miracle" by Humberto G. Garcia.

Garcia, a retired Mexican-American lawyer and passionate golfer, was moved by the extraordinary story of a group of young Mexican-American caddies in 1950s Texas. Against a backdrop of racial discrimination and limited resources, they shattered expectations by winning the 1957 Texas State High School Golf Championship.

Garcia first learned about the process Hollywood goes through to make a movie by attending AuthorHouse’s Book-to-Screen Pitchfest. He actually had the book optioned after that event, but that producer let the option expire and he went through options with two different production companies before he finally saw the story of his book come to the screen.

"The Long Game" features a talented cast, including Jay Hernandez and Dennis Quaid. Since its successful premiere at the 2023 SXSW Film Festival, where it won the Narrative Spotlight Audience Award, the film has generated positive buzz, securing the support of boxing champion and entrepreneur Saul "Canelo" Alvarez as an executive producer.

Garcia's journey from being a self-published author to having his story reach the silver screen highlights both the power of compelling storytelling and the role of platforms like AuthorHouse in empowering new voices.

"The Long Game" brings a message of hope, perseverance, and triumph over adversity to American theaters on April 12, 2024.
