The studio was blunt in its statement: “We f—ing love this movie”.
A pro-union, anti-corporate tale of late capitalist dystopia, “Sorry to Bother You” takes on racism and corporate greed through the story of an Oakland-based telemarketer named Cassius Green who discovers a magical key to professional success.
It was written and directed by Boots Riley, political organizer and frontman for The Coup and Street Sweeper Social Club. The film stars Lakeith Stanfield (“Get Out”), Tessa Thompson (“Creed”), Armie Hammer (“Call Me by Your Name”), David Cross (“Arrested Development”), and Terry Crews (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”).
An advocate for the power of the working class to reorganize the production of profit, Boots speaks on strategic negotiation tools for activists and artists.
