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.
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. It’s a wistful odyssey populated by skaters, squatters, street preachers, playwrights, and other locals on the margins. Joe Talbot's directorial debut is a deep and resonant meditation on the stories we tell ourselves to find our place in the world.
2LP classic black vinyl with gold foil printed gatefold sleeve. Original score is composed by Emile Mosseri (The Dig, Random Acts of Flyness, How to Tell You’re A Douchebag).
Features a version of the pop classic “San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)” performed by Mike Marshal (Timex Social Club).
“Bolstered by a score from composer Emile Mosseri, whose stirring pieces add depth to moments when victory is within grasp or when the realization of failure hits."
