Bicoastal production partner m ss ng p eces today welcomed Joe Talbot to its directorial roster. Joe is best known for directing and co-writing ‘The Last Black Man in San Francisco’ (A24), his feature film debut and one of the most critically acclaimed films of 2019. This signing marks his first commercial representation.
This year, he released ‘The Last Black Man in San Francisco,’ a co-creation with his childhood best friend and longtime professional collaborator Jimmie Fails, adapted from Fails’ life story. The film premiered at Sundance, where it earned the Best Director and Special Jury Awards, and was released theatrically by A24 in June of this year. It was named a Critic’s Pick by the New York Times, where Manolah Dargis wrote that it was an 'astonishing, haunting and indelibly beautiful story of love.' Rolling Stone called it the 'best film of 2019.' This year, Talbot and Fails also co-founded their film production company, Longshot Features, based between San Francisco and Los Angeles.
A fifth-generation San Franciscan, Talbot was recently nominated in multiple categories at the Gotham and Independent Spirit Awards, and named one of Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces. He first gained critical attention with his award-winning 2017 short film ‘American Paradise,’ which premiered at Sundance and also screened at SXSW, the LA Film Festival, Palm Springs ShortFest, and many others, in addition to being a Vimeo Staff Pick.
“Through his extraordinary film, Joe has shown that he's a wholly original new voice in cinema. I can’t wait to see how he translates his unique brand of emotional storytelling and visually rich filmmaking to the commercial world,” said Kate Oppenheim, managing partner at m ss ng p eces.
