The Last Black Man in San Francisco


Writers Joe Talbot and Jimmie Fails will receive over $70,000 in funding from their Kickstarter Campaign to make The Last Black Man in San Francisco a full length film. The film will focus on the perils of gentrification that is now being experienced across the country, but specifically in San Francisco. The way things are going with unaffordable housing in the nation’s top cities, they’ll have to do The Last Black Family in DC next.

“The Last Black Man in San Francisco is a feature-length narrative film currently in pre-production that is inspired by the real life of Jimmie Fails, a third-generation San Franciscan, who dreams of buying back his old family home in the Fillmore.

But this film isn’t just about tough economic times and changing political landscapes in San Francisco. It’s a story about two inseparable misfits who are searching for home in a city they can no longer call their own.”
