In his anarchic debut feature, Boots Riley sets fire to the modern world and blasts off to brilliantly original territory. Starring Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out, Atlanta) and Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok, Creed), this is 2018's most timely feature.
Cash (Stanfield) is a black call centre worker, who is asked to 'sound white' in order to drive sales. What happens next is the stuff of the highest order of parody.
This brilliant absurdist film savages capitalism, low-paid labour and racism in a cutting, visually surprising trip that will leave you baffled, buoyed and bruised in equal parts.
Boots Riley, director of Sorry to Bother You, dials in via Skype to answer your questions following a preview presentation of the film.
