Keswick Film Festival – Sorry To Bother You - 15
Every year, we at KFF try to make best use of the giant screen at Rheged.
In an alternate version of present-day California, mild-mannered call centre operator Cassius Green whizzes up the corporate ladder after he discovers his unique ability to adopt a ‘white voice’. However the costs of success could be significantly more than alienation from his colleagues and his activist girlfriend. Funny and surreal, Sorry to Bother you addresses serious themes of everyday racism and workforce oppression with a fresh wit and visual panache.“It’s broad, brash, in your face, inventively shot and, at times, laugh-out-loud funny yet it also becomes a mind-bogglingly extreme Swiftian satire that predicts the Houyhnhnms* that our harsh times will create.” Dog and Wolf, Boots Riley, USA 2018
