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. It s 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. Joe Talbot's directorial debut is a deep and resonant meditation on the stories we tell ourselves to find our place in the world.

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. --pitchfork.com

Emile Mosseri's gorgeous woodwind score, which sounds like a 21st century riff on the iconic music that Philip Glass wrote for Koyaanisqatsi . --indiewire.com

a hymnal catharsis from Emile Mosseri's choir-driven score --rogerebert.com
