DIRECTOR: Joe Talbot

WITH: Jimmie Fails, Jonathan Majors, Rob Morgan, Tichina Arnold, Danny Glover

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.

Winner of the Directing Award and Special Jury Award for Creative Collaboration, Sundance Film Festival 2019.

"Occasionally, a film comes around that thrillingly invents its own cinematic rhythms, perfectly suited to its subject. The Last Black Man in San Francisco is such a film and it’s one to make your head sing and heart soar." Tricia Tuttle, BFI London Film Festival.
