Progress so far: With over 70 hours of material, The House on Coco Road is at the beginning of post-production. Over three weeks of principal photography in Grenada produced invaluable and exclusive interviews with former leaders from the years of revolution.
Upon returning from production in Grenada, I continued untangling my upbringing, dreams pursued, deferred, rerouted. The women I remembered sitting in my kitchen, shared fond memories of this unique moment in my family’s history. In an interview with Angela Davis she recounts her first trip to the island with my mother and the excitement she witnessed in this new developing country. Fania Davis remembers the feeling of being in a county with a population of African descent taking control of their destinies and how that had a profound impact on African Americans.
The House on Coco Road is in need of funds for a full post-production schedule. If we meet our goal we will be able to secure an editor and take the project into an audio mix and color correct. A portion of the requested amount will also make additional interviews with other incredible visionaries possible such as Congresswoman Barbara Lee, Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon and Dr. Cornel West.
WE SURPASSED OUR MINIMUM GOAL OF $110,000!!! With the help of nearly 600 generous individuals we now have the funds to bring together our team of incredible collaborators to start working on the film full-time!
