A Trailer To Tug At Your Creative Heartstrings

Recently a friend of mine sent me the link to a trailer for an independent film based in his hometown, San Francisco. As I watched this mesmerizing piece of art I couldn’t help but know I would love this movie.

The friends I passed it on to also fell in love with it right away.

The Last Black Man In San Francisco tells the story of a young black man searching for a home in an ever-changing city. The plotline still seems a bit vague and the trailer itself isn’t much to go on, storywise, but critically it’s already doing phenomenal and won a couple of awards at Sundance.

The cinematography looks perfect and the music grabs you from the beginning. I don’t think these few paragraphs I’m writing can do it justice, so you’ll just have to watch it for yourself.

I’m personally looking forward to this film when it’s released to a wider audience because I don’t want to miss out on this innovative independent film.
