Members & guests–$3.99 to rent on Amazon Prime (click here) and other platforms. To RSVP, please scroll down. Registered attendees will then receive an email the day before the discussion with a link to join via Zoom.
Note: this film was originally selected to be discussed on February 20. Due to a technical glitch with Zoom, the group was unable to meet. Therefore this film will now be discussed on Saturday, February 27.
Watch the film any time before the discussion–or enjoy the discussion and be persuaded to view it after! Collin must make it through his final three days of probation for a chance at a new beginning in his Oakland, Calif., neighborhood. His bond with his volatile best friend soon gets tested when Collin sees a police officer shoot a suspect in the back during a chase through the streets. Things soon come to a head when the buddies attend a party at the upscale home of a young and wealthy tech entrepreneur. As timely as it is overall impactful, Blindspotting blends buddy comedy with seething social commentary, and rises on the strength of Daveed Diggs’ powerful performance. Village member Mel Washburn will host a discussion of the film via Zoom this Saturday at 3:00 PM.
