Winner of directing and special jury awards at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, “The Last Black Man in San Francisco” doubles as a love letter to the titular city and a real-life tale of gentrification. As A24’s newly released trailer below indicates, it’s a treat for the eyes, the kind of visually sumptuous filmmaking that attracts awards voters.
Directed, produced, and co-written by Joe Talbot and starring co-story writer Jimmie Fails in a semiautobiographical role, “The Last Black Man in San Francisco” also stars Jonathan Majors, Rob Morgan, Tichina Arnold, and Danny Glover. It will grace big screens this summer.
