Clip: 11/08/2019 | 13m 52s

”The Last Black Man in San Francisco” is a semi-autobiographical film following Jimmie Fails as he tries to regain his father’s house. It’s a passion project for its star—he and the director, Joe Talbot, first conceived of the film when they were just teenagers. Fails sits down with Hari to discuss how he feels now that it has turned out to be one of the best-reviewed films of the year.
