Welcome back to the Bay with a screening of A24’s latest hit, The Last Black Man In San Francisco. Made by Bay Area locals director Joe Talbot and writer/star Jimmie Fails, the film is a true love letter to an OG SF. Free popcorn too! Thanks to Superb Berkeley and Do The Bay for the tip-off.
Request an RSVP – Please note that it’s not clear if this screening is inteded just for Cal students or open to the entire community.
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. 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.
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.
