Kovno Communications is the fiscal sponsor for the feature-length documentary film From Ghost Town to Havana, produced and directed by Eugene Corr of Playtwo Pictures in Berkeley, California.
Since the summer of 2007, the project has followed the lives of Afro Cuban boys growing up in Centro Habana, Cuba playing baseball for Coach Nicolas Reyes, and African-American boys growing up in a neighborhood in West Oakland called “Ghost Town,” playing for Coach Roscoe Bryant. In the Spring of 2010 Coach Roscoe Bryant leads nine of his wary street-wise players, including 13 year old right fielder, Chris Fletcher, on a trip to Cuba to play baseball against Coach Nicolas’ team. On the last night of a beautiful week of baseball and friendship, Coach Roscoe receives a call from home. Chris’ stepfather has been murdered. Can Coach Roscoe persuade his players to embrace life in the midst of death? The film highlights the tough path Roscoe’s players must follow to find a way out of a life of poverty and neglect and the key role mentors play.
