Sandy Spring Film Series: Blindspotting

January 22 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Blindspotting – the first viewing in the Sandy Spring Film Series.

A parolee with three days left on his sentence witnesses a police shooting that threatens to ruin a lifelong friendship. This thought-provoking film about gentrification, policing and racism in Oakland, California, was written by and stars lifelong real-life friends, Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal. The duo wrote the screenplay in the mid-2000s, initially to speak for the city of Oakland, which they felt was often misrepresented in film.

The film will be followed by an audience discussion.

Mark your calendar for the viewing of Eighth Grade on February 5.
