The House on Coco Road

Damani Baker, 2017, 79 min
Set amidst the Grenada Revolution, the House on Coco Road follows one family’s flight from racial tensions in 1980’s Oakland, California, only to find themselves settled directly in the path of a U.S. military invasion. First hand accounts from activists Angela Davis, Fania Davis and Fannie Haughton weave together director Damani Baker’s family portrait of utopic dreams, resistance and civil unrest with music composed by Grammy award nominated luminary, Meshell Ndegeocello.

Q&A with director Damani Baker to follow the screening on Friday, July 21st.
