The 2018 film, "Sorry to Bother You," directed by Boots Riley, is the featured film for the Department of Theatre and Film's Tuesday Night Screenings. The film is a scathing satire of late-stage capitalism, class striving, and racial inequality. Set in an alternate version of Oakland, the film follows Cassius Green (LaKeith Stanfield), a lowly telemarketer who discovers he has a remarkable talent that can lead him to unimaginable wealth – but at great cost to his body, mind, soul and relationships. With remarkable wit and verve, the film depicts the American dream as a Ponzi scheme.
The screenings are free and open to the public.
