The director of one of the year's most talked about films is headed to Metro Detroit for a pair of appearances on the film's opening weekend. 

Boots Riley will participate on Saturday in a pair of question-and-answer sessions following screenings of his new film, "Sorry to Bother You."

The director will appear following the 7 p.m. Saturday screening of the film at Emagine Novi and the 8:30 p.m. showing at AMC John R in Madison Heights. 

Tickets for the two showings are available here.
