Discovery: Sorry to Bother You

  • Harris Academy South Norwood 2 Cumberlow Avenue London SE25 6AE (map)

Dir. Boots Riley • 2018 • US • Sci-Fi/Comedy • 112 mins • Cert 15

In alternate reality Oakland, telemarketer Cassius Green discovers the key to success is to embrace his inner ‘white voice’.

As his career skyrockets, Green finds himself at the best parties and top tier levels of capitalism. He forgets his friends and co-workers who are organising a protest against corporate oppression.

An absurdist, timely, and relevant directorial debut by Boots Riley, Sorry to Bother You stars Lakeith Stanfield (Atlanta) and Tessa Thompson (Thor, Creed).

We’re pleased to be screening short film Neckface, written by Sian Harries and Jacqueline Wright , before the main feature. Find out more about our Shorts In The South initiative here.
