On Screen | In Person logoGhost Town to Havana follows filmmaker Eugene Corr as he spends five years on baseball fields in inner city Oakland, CA and Havana, Cuba documenting the lives of two extraordinary youth baseball coaches. One is Roscoe Bryant, a 46-year-old African-American man, coaching in an Oakland neighborhood wracked by three decades of gang violence. The other is Nicolás Reyes, a 61 year old Afro-Cuban, who coaches in an economically desperate Havana neighborhood. After two years of US/Cuba sanctions and red tape, Coach Roscoe and nine players fly to Havana to play Coach Nicolás’ 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.
