Boots Riley

Presented by UNIQUE Programs at Sacramento State (CSUS) - University Union

Boots Riley is an American rapper, producer, screenwriter, film director, and has a passion for activism and creativity. He is also the head vocalist of the group The Coup and Street Sweeper Social Club. Boots’ first movie creation was in 2007, with a film called In Prison My Whole Life. However, he didn’t come to the limelight of film until his 2018 film, Sorry to Bother You.

Sorry to Bother You is a fantasy/sci-fi movie. The film’s main character, Cassius Green, finds himself in a world where he finds a magic key that unleashes “material glory.” Next, Cassius soon finds himself becoming very successful in his telemarketing career, but his friends start to create a protest against corporate oppression against ordinary civilians. Cassius then finds himself intrigued by a salary offer from a corrupt cocaine-using CEO, and he is left with some very grave decisions to be made.

This event will be a unique lecture night with Boots Riley regarding his success as a producer and American rapper, and his inspiration behind Sorry to Bother You.
