“The Last Black Man in San Francisco is a poetic and picturesque ode to the title city, to friendship and to the universal urge to find a place to call home.” – Peter Howell, Toronto Star


“The Last Black Man in San Francisco” is poignant filmmaking with an invigorating spirit.”– Adam Graham, Detroit News


“There is something irrepressibly original and exciting in the collaboration that results between Talbot, Fails and co-writer Rob Richert – a cinematic vision that feels as fresh as it does necessary.” – Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail


Jimmie Fails dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco. Joined on his quest by his best friend Mont, Jimmie searches for belonging in a rapidly changing city that seems to have left them behind. As he struggles to reconnect with his family and reconstruct the community he longs for, his hopes blind him to the reality of his situation. A wistful odyssey populated by skaters, squatters, street preachers, playwrights, and other locals on the margins, The Last Black Man in San Francisco is a poignant and sweeping story of hometowns and how they’re made—and kept alive—by the people who love them.
