Dir. Cord Jefferson, US, 2023, 117 mins. Cast. Jeffrey Wright, Issa Rae, Sterling K. Brown, Tracee Ellis Ross.

In American Fiction, Cord Jefferson crafts a hilarious and withering satire about an African American novelist chafing against an industry that limits Black storytelling to trauma and poverty narratives. Monk is a frustrated novelist who’s fed up with the establishment that profits from Black entertainment that relies on tired and offensive tropes. To prove his point, he uses a pen name to write an outlandish Black book of his own, a book that propels him to the heart of hypocrisy and the madness he claims to disdain.
