About the team
Boots Riley (Writer, Director) was born on April Fools’ Day, but he is no damn fool. His drink of choice is bourbon, but he’s thinking about switching to mezcal because he heard it’s healthier. He studied film at San Francisco State University before ending his studies in favor of a major-label recording deal for his band, The Coup. Riley was raised-and still lives-in Oakland, California. Sorry To Bother You is his directorial debut.
