THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO

Directed by Joe Talbot / 2019 / 120 minutes / Rated R

TRAILER: https://youtu.be/C0FnJDhY9-0


Director/co-writer/composer Joe Talbot makes an astonishing feature debut, transfiguring one man’s intimate despair into a timely story that questions who has a rightful claim to a city’s identity. Inspired by the real-life story of Jimmie Fails, who plays a fictionalized version of himself, THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO elegantly engages with a loss of cross-cultural connection as one individual seeks belonging in the new incarnation of his hometown.

Jimmie Fails dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco. Joined on his quest by his best friend, Jimmie searches for belonging in a rapidly changing city that seems to have left them behind.
“Like Barry Jenkins similarly set Medicine for Melancholy, The Last Black Man in San Francisco supplies positivity to the struggle.”–TIME OUT

“[A] story that doesn’t announce its themes but instead transforms lived-in ideas about friendship, loneliness, artmaking, gentrification and the many faces of black masculinity.”– NEW YORK TIMES
