Salida Film Festival: American Fiction

May 9 @ 7:00 pm

Director: Cord Jefferson
Opening Night Film – Sponsored by Colorado Office of Film Television Media
Salida SteamPlant
7:00pm – Thursday, May 9

Thelonious “Monk” Ellison’s writing career has stalled because his work isn’t deemed “Black enough.” Monk, a writer and English professor, writes a satirical novel under a pseudonym, aiming to expose the publishing world’s hypocrisies. The book’s immediate success forces him to get deeper enmeshed in his assumed identity and challenges his closely-held worldviews. Film is Rated R. Winner of the 2024 Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay.
