Directed by Boots Riley, 2018

Join us for a free screening of last year’s dark science-fiction comedy, which GQ called the best film of 2018.

In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, Cassius Green works as a telemarketer, and finds it a struggle as a black man selling to predominately white people over the phone. That changes when someone he works with suggests he use his “white voice,” to make himself more appealing to customers.

Strangely, this works, and with a bizarrely high-pitched accent, Cassius becomes a success. As his colleagues form a union to improve their miserable jobs, he finds himself promoted a Power Caller, selling immoral but lucrative products and services as he becomes more and more removed from his world.

Age Classification: 15.
