The Film Society: “Blindspotting” Discussion on November 22, 2020.
Daveed Diggs, winner of Grammy and Tony awards for his roles in ¨Hamilton,¨ and his long-time friend, Raphael Casal, wrote and superbly co-star in “Blindspotting.” A young Black man in Oakland aims to get quietly through the last few days of his supervised parole, but hanging with his volatile best buddy isn’t likely to help. While lightened with humor, there are also fear and rage, as the film wrestles with themes of police violence, gentrification, and white privilege. Directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada, 2018, U.S., 96 minutes, rated R for language and violence.
