"Sorry to Bother You" screening with Boots Riley

Anna Purna Pictures
LaKeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson
Nothing says “dystopia” quite like the American dream, which is the unlikely subject of the sharpest — and most underrated — dark comedy of 2018. Offering commentary on race, competition, injustice, profit, protest, and the shallow millennial job pool (thanks, baby boomers), Sorry to Bother You is the ambitious debut from rapper-turned-director Boots Riley. The film stars LaKeith Stanfield as the struggling entrepreneur Cassius “Cash” and Tessa Thompson as his artist girlfriend, Detroit, as they navigate the cost of the corporate ladder once Cash accepts a shady telemarketing job where he develops his “white voice” (which sounds an awful lot like David Cross). Following a screening of the film at WSU Community Arts Auditorium, Riley will speak on the film and conduct a Q&A with the audience.
