The Last Black Man in San Francisco

2019 • dir Joe Talbot w/Jimmie Fails, Jonathan Majors, Rob Morgan, Mike Epps, Danny Glover • 121 min • DCP

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 Mont, Jimmie searches for belonging in a rapidly changing city that seems to have left them behind. A wistful odyssey populated by skaters, squatters, street preachers, playwrights, and other locals on the margins, THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO is a poignant and sweeping story of hometowns and how they’re made – and kept alive – by the people who love them.

Staff Pick! Casey, Joey

“The Last Black Man in San Francisco is a poetic and picturesque ode to the title city, to friendship and to the universal urge to find a place to call home.”
– Peter Howell, Toronto Star

“Even when Talbot and Fails risk unraveling the film’s most cherished verities, they do so with the mesmerizing grace of a skateboard gliding down Lombard Street.”
– Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
