BREAKING BALLS. John Vourlis’ new documentary follows three colorful figures as they compete in Cleveland’s Challenge Cup of Bocce tournament. The somewhat leisurely game — in which balls are rolled into proximity to others — is popular in Italian-American communities, and can take the form of a casual afternoon among friends or a fierce competition. The film, which was a hit at the 2017 Cleveland International Film Festival, plays here for one week.
