There will be a free screening of the dark comedy, “Sorry to Bother You,” followed by a Q&A with the movie’s director Boots Riley and UCLA professors H. Samy Alim, Gaye Theresa Johnson, Kelly Lytle-Hernández and Robin Kelley on Tuesday, Nov. 6.
“Sorry to Bother You” follows a young African-American man who adopts a white accent to succeed at his telemarketing job. He soon is propelled into greed and controversy, and must choose between making money and joining his activist friends.
The event, which will be in the Fowler Museum’s Lenart auditorium, is co-presented by the department of anthropology, the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs and the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies.
The film will start at 6:30 p.m. and the Q&A will begin at 8:30 p.m. Admission is free and seats are available on a first come, first served basis.
