The Last Black Man in San Francisco

An affecting story powerfully told, The Last Black Man in San Francisco immediately establishes director Joe Talbot as a filmmaker to watch.

Jimmie and his best friend Mont try to reclaim the house built by Jimmie’s grandfather, launching them on a poignant odyssey that connects them to their past, even as it tests their friendship and sense of belonging in the place they call home.

Even though Talbot opts for a quasi-humorous approach to the subject matter, the comedic edge can’t hide an underlying sadness about what this all means.

A gorgeous, painful tribute to an American way of life that doesn’t exist anymore; finding moving beauty in a foreseeable tragedy that will warm your heart.
