The Last Black Man in San Francisco

Joe Talbot, USA, 2019o

vBack

Jimmie Fails dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco. As he struggles to reconstruct the community he longs for, his hopes blind him.

The story of Jimmie and Mont is one of insiders turned into outsiders by the forces of gentrification, but also a wider reflection on the elusive and illusive notion of home. The film leaves no doubt that Talbot’s home is the one where he grew up alongside his co-writer and star Fails: the rapidly changing San Francisco, captured here with an acuity of vision and a wildness of imagination that come of love and disappointment.
