Event Description

Ghost Town to Havana follows filmmaker Eugene Corr as he spends five years on ball fields in inner city Oakland and Havana, documenting the lives of two extraordinary youth baseball coaches: Nicolás Reyes, a 61 year old Afro-Cuban who coaches in an economically desperate Havana neighborhood, and Roscoe Bryant, a 46 year old African-American man coaching in an Oakland neighborhood wracked by three decades of gang violence. After two years of US/Cuba sanctions and red tape, Coach Roscoe and 9 players fly to Havana to play Coach Nicolas' team. As the boys gradually warm to the fun-loving friendship of their hosts, Roscoe receives a fateful phone call from home. Right fielder Chris Fletcher's stepfather has been murdered on an Oakland street.
