Film Review: Fruitvale Station (Dir: Ryan Coogler) ndlela July 15, 2013 Movie, My Videos, Review I was fortunate to attend director Ryan Coogler’s conversation with Eugene Hernandez atÂ Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Summer Talks. The next day I watched his film Fruitvale Station and was really touched by it. Â Coogler does an excellent job of giving us glimpses into Oscar Grant‘s life. Â Grant was the 22 year old Black man who wasÂ shot by a BART police officer on New Year’s Day 2009. Â Definitely go see this film. Â Check out my video review below.
