Joe Talbot is best known for his feature-length debut, The Last Black Man in San Francisco , which won the 2019 Sundance Film Festival Directing Award, as well as a Special Jury Prize for Creative Collaboration.

The hit independent film is an empathetic and unflinching examination of gentrification and toxic masculinity, which instantly touched the hearts of critics and audiences alike, and garnered Film Independent Spirit Award nominations for Best First Feature.

Talbot has also honed his filmmaking craft and highly stylized aesthetic with short-form content, such as his Sundance-winning short film, “American Paradise” and Adele’s viral music video for “I Drink Wine”.  In less than a month, the music video racked up over 20 million views.
