Presented as part of the Portland Black Film Festival. The film follows the character of Putney Swope, the only black man at an all-white advertising firm, who is accidentally elected to be the chairman of the board after the prior chairman dies. Billed as a dark, satiric comedy ("Don't rock the boat, sink it!" proclaims the film's poster), the comedian Louis C.K. has cited Putney Swope as one of his top career influnces. You'll have to see it to figure out why.
