CB Film Fest Monthly Film: Blindspotting
May 22 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$12
Collin (Daveed Diggs) is trying to make it through his final three days of probation for an infamous arrest. Always by his side is his fast-talking childhood bestie, Miles (Rafael Casal) who has a knack for finding trouble. Home is notoriously rough Oakland, which has become the new trendy in the rapidly gentrifying Bay Area. When Collin’s chance for a fresh start is interrupted by a more-famous police shooting, his friendship with Miles is forced out of its comfortable buddy-comedy existence, and the Bay boys are set on a spiraling collision course with each other and the law. Exploding with energy, style, and raw emotion, Blindspotting unravels today’s intersection of race and class with urgent and poetic justice. This provocative, hip-hop, hometown love letter glistens with humanity and asks what your blind spot is, what you cannot or will not see. Starring Daveed Diggs, Rafael Casal and Janina Gavankar. Running time: 95 minutes. Rated R.
Doors open at 6:30 pm.
Film starts at 7:00 pm.
