GHOST TOWN TO HAVANA, co-presented by The Berkeley FILM Foundation featuring a post-film Q&A with director Eugene Corr (Doc Night)
About "Ghost Town to Havana":
An inner city coach's son estranged in his youth from his late father - spends 5 years on ball fields in Oakland and Havana, following the lives of two extraordinary youth coaches and their players. In 2010, Coach Roscoe Bryant and nine Oakland players travel to Havana to play Coach Nicolas' team. For the next week, the players and coaches eat, dance, swim, argue and play baseball together. Real friendships form. But when a parent of one of the players is murdered in Oakland, it brings back the reality of the inescapable challenges of life in the inner city.
Ghost Town to Havana is deep, powerful, and a loving exploration of what it means to be an inner city coach in America today.
