THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO

THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO (2019)—Joe Talbot and Jimmie Fails’ visual poem to a city they knew well, loved greatly, and lost to gentrification—is already a period piece; many of the locations depicted in the movie have been torn down since filming wrapped.

“There was a feeling growing up in San Francisco. There was the park where we met as kids, Precita Park, you’d see Filipino kids, Samoan, Latino, black, white. All hanging around each other, getting to know each other and dating across different backgrounds. And I think that San Francisco, I’m afraid, is on the verge of not existing, because so many of the people that we grew up with are being priced out of the city. And out of that sort of crossover, you have friendships like ours. So for one, I fear that the next generation won’t be making art like this. ‘Cause those friendships have to take form to produce that art.” — director Joe Talbot, to Jimmie Fails

This unmissable work—starring Fails, Jonathan MajorsRob Morgan, Tichina ArnoldDanny Glover, Mike Epps, and Finn Wittrock—has been held over until late-August.
