Cloyne Court: The Documentary 

Premiering at the Omni Commons.

Cloyne Court is one of the world’s largest communal living spaces. Located a mere block from the UC Berkeley campus, the student housing cooperative is home to 150 students and has been a hub for counterculture movements since the 1960s. Cloyne Court: The Documentary, a new short film made by recent Cal grads Anya Schultz and Shirin Ghaffary, tells the story of the unconventional communities that thrived there and follows their fight to stay put as a lawsuit threatens to kick them out. The film is a tragic portrait of a group of students grappling with being forced to let go of their idealism as the murals that mark the rich history of the house are threatened with erasure, along with the coop’s community and idiosyncratic culture. Cloyne Court will premier with a free screening at the Omni Commons (4799 Shattuck Ave., Oakland) on Friday, December 18 at 7:30 p.m. The half hour screening will be followed by a Q&A with the directors.
