Ghost Town to Havana is a grassroots, street level story of mentorship and everyday heroism for young boys in tough circumstances which takes place in both Oakland and Havana, Cuba. A coach’s son, estranged in his youth from his father, spends five years on ball fields in West Oakland and Havana following the lives of two extraordinary youth baseball coaches, Roscoe in Oakland and Nicolas in Havana. The coaches exchange struggles and stories over videotape for two years, when finally Coach Roscoe and nine of his players travel to Havana to play Nicolas’ team. When the boys meet in Cuba, it’s joy and baseball versus murder and poverty. The purpose of the of film is to inspire and encourage more mentorship and coaching in urban, minority communities. The screening is sponsored by the San Francisco Junior Giants and the Positive Coaching Alliance which is also providing joint training and support for folks who wish to become coaches.
