Description:

Ghost Town to Havana follows filmmaker Eugene Corr as he spends five years on baseball fields in inner city Oakland, Calif., and Havana, Cuba, documenting the lives of two extraordinary youth baseball coaches. One, Roscoe Bryant, a 46-year-old African- American man, coaching in an Oakland neighborhood wracked by three decades of gang violence. The other, 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 Nicolas’ team. As the boys gradually warm to the fun-loving friendship of their hosts, Roscoe receives a fateful phone call from home.
