Boots Riley’s 2018 film takes code-switching to a new level as an African American telemarketer finds stunning success, and ultimately a moral dilemma, when he develops a new style of sales pitch. A screening is followed by a discussion examining the film’s portrayal of worker activism and (plot-twisting) relationship to Martin Luther King Jr., its anti-capitalist stances, and its portrayal of code-switching for people of color. (2018, 111 min.) FMI 207-786-6400 or (after Dec. 21).
