Last Black Man in San Francisco

Hadley Griggs

Whether you’re into postapocalyptic sci-fi thrillers or documentaries about the first all-female sailing crew, June’s Festival- and lab-supported releases are sure to have something to pique your interest.

One particularly irresistible post-Fest release is A24’s The Last Black Man in San Francisco. Directed by Joe Talbot and starring Jimmie Fails, it took home both a U.S. Dramatic Directing Award and a Special Jury Award for creative collaboration at the 2019 Festival. It’s a poignant, sweeping story of reconstructing community in a hometown that feels like it’s left the characters behind.

Another release to catch in theaters is Late Night, a smart and snappy comedy directed by Nisha Ganatra, written by Mindy Kaling, and starring Kaling and Emma Thompson. It takes on white privilege, entitlement, and a culture veering toward crassness and conservatism—all through the story of a late-night talk show.

Check out all of the Sundance-supported productions coming to theaters, digital platforms, and the stage this month.
