ARRAY has released the trailer and tour dates for its latest acquisition, THE HOUSE ON COCO ROAD.
In celebration of Caribbean American Heritage Month, the film will debut June 30 on Netflix proceeded by a series of one-night and limited engagements across the country including New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago, Houston, and Seattle starting June 6.
Set amidst the Grenada Revolution, THE HOUSE ON COCO ROAD documents 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 utopian dreams, resistance and civil unrest with a film score composed by music luminary Meshell Ndegeocello. ARRAY has acquired distribution rights for United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand territories.
“Filmmaker Damani Baker’s cinematic journey into the heart of women-led political movements and his mother’s pursuit of liberty for her children at all costs is immensely inspiring,” explained ARRAY’s Executive Director Tilane Jones. “We’re excited to share this piece of American history and activism with an international film audience.”
THE HOUSE ON COCO ROAD is an intimate documentary exploration of heritage and history against the backdrop of a brewing Afro-centric revolution as the U.S. government prepares to invade the island nation of Grenada. The film held its world premiere at the 2016 Los Angeles Film Festival.
