About The Team

Boots Riley (WriterDirector) 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.

Cinereach co-financed Sorry to Bother You together with Significant Productions, MNM Creative, Macro Ventures and The Space Program, and was part of the film’s producing team. The film received support from SF Film and Sundance Institute.
