In 1983, the United States led an invasion of Grenada, a small nation in the Carribbean. A documentary film screening at Filmfest D.C., “The House On Coco Road,” explores this corner of history through the experience of family caught up in it. Kojo connects with the filmmaker and explores how the events of that era intersected with Washington’s own Caribbean community.
