While on probation, a black man begins to re-evaluate his relationship with his volatile best friend.
Collin (Daveed Diggs) must make it through his final three days of probation for a chance at a new beginning. He and his troublemaking childhood best friend, Miles (Rafael Casal), work as movers, and when Collin witnesses a police shooting, the two men’s friendship is tested as they grapple with identity and their changed realities in the rapidly-gentrifying neighborhood they grew up in.
Longtime friends and collaborators, Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal co-wrote and star in this timely and wildly entertaining story about friendship and the intersection of race and class set against the backdrop of Oakland. Bursting with energy, style, and humor, and infused with the spirit of rap, hip-hop, and spoken word, BLINDSPOTTING, boldly directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada in his feature film debut, is a provocative hometown love letter that glistens with humanity.
Starring Daveed Diggs, Rafael Casal, Janina Gavankar, Jasmine Cephas Jones, Ethan Embry, Tisha Campbell-Martin
Awards and Reviews
Nominee – Grand Jury Prize, Sundance Film Festival
Winner – Director to Watch, Palm Springs Intl Film Festival
“Racism, gentrification, police brutality, start-up culture, corporate branding, social media, the justice system … Blindspotting is eager to take them all on with style and wit, and it succeeds.” – Barry Hertz, The Globe and Mail
“Two Oakland homies, ‘Hamilton’ star Daveed Diggs and poet Rafael Casal, create an intensely personal story about life on the edge in a rapidly changing city. Even when the plot fires off in too many directions, Diggs and Casal will keep you riveted.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
BLINDSPOTTING is rated 15. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may include plot spoilers).
