Set in a parallel version of Oakland California, this surreal dark comedy follows Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield), a low-level telemarketer who finds success when he discovers his “white voice” and must decide between rising up the ranks of white corporate America or remaining true to his working-class roots.
A broad take on the commodification of black and working-class bodies, from wage slavery to performance art and everything in between, Boots Riley’s debut feature is a wild and incisive satire of contemporary America. English, 111 minutes. Visit https://www.facebook.com/events/314280235808079/ for more info.
