TBB Talks to … Boots Riley


TBB Talks caught up with rapper turned filmmaker Boots Riley, to discuss his soon to be released debut film ‘Sorry to Bother You’.

In an alternate reality of present-day Oakland, Calif., telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stansfield) finds himself in a macabre universe after he discovers a magical key that leads to material glory. As Green’s career begins to take off, his friends and co-workers organize a protest against corporate oppression. Cassius soon falls under the spell of Steve Lift (Armie Hammer), a cocaine-snorting CEO who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams.

Riley’s surrealist political satire is a refreshing break from the cinematic norm.
