Details

With just three days left on his probation, all Oakland resident Collin wants to do is keep his head down, do his job and look forward to getting on with his life. But then he witnesses a white cop shooting an unarmed black man late at night while stopped at an intersection. With no respite from surrounding pressures, including his erratic troublemaking best friend Miles, Collin struggles to stay in control.

Blindspotting is cut from the same cloth as Donald Glover’s Atlanta, not just in how co-writers and stars Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal dive headlong into uncomfortable discussions of racial politics, but also in their continual shifting of tone. This is a film that moves from witty observational humour to shocking bursts of violence in beautifully controlled beats. Stylish, funny and timely, Blindspotting is an unmissable debut. 

Specially commissioned programme notes are available here.

I unabashedly admire the movie's aims, and think "Blindspotting" ought to be seen by the widest audience possible.
