Description

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 1 & MONDAY SEPTEMBER 2
THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO (3:30), 6:00, 8:30
Sundance Winner: Special Jury Award

Jimmie Fails dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco. With his best friend Mont, Jimmie searches for belonging in a rapidly changing city that seems to have left them behind. As he struggles to reconnect with his family and reconstruct the community he longs for, his hopes blind him to the reality of his situation. Fifth-generation San Franciscan Joe Talbot (who won the Best Director prize at Sundance) makes his directorial debut with this poignant and sweeping ode to San Francisco's skaters, squatters, street preachers, playwrights, and other locals, and offers a tragic, poetic depiction of the unstoppable gentrification that threatens to erase them. The film stars Jimmie Fails, Jonathan Majors, Rob Morgan, and Danny Glover. (2019, 121 min, DCP)
