"The Last Black Man in San Francisco" explores the meaning of home and community against gentrification, displacement, and a city's changing identity. It is the debut feature film of San Francisco natives and childhood friends, director and writer Joe Talbot, and actor and writer Jimmie Fails. The film follows Fails' semi-autobiographical character as he tries to reclaim his ancestral home in San Francisco's Fillmore district. Also featuring veteran actor Danny Glover, "The Last Black Man in San Francisco" won Best Director and Special Jury Awards at the Sundance Film Festival in January and is now playing in theaters. Talbot and Fails join Forum to discuss their film and what San Francisco means to them.
