Description

Black Space Winnipeg and Winnipeg Film Group’s Cinematheque partner for our October feature, Get Out. Get Out has brought racial discourse to the horror film genre. Receiving both praise and mixed reviews, Jordan Peele (Emmy-winning creator/star of Comedy Central’s sketch series Key and Peele), made his film debut with this incredibly sharp horror film.

Get Out follows a young African-American man (Daniel Kaluuya) who has reached a dating milestone with his girlfriend (Allison Williams): she invites him for a weekend getaway at the mysterious estate of her parents (Bradley Whitford, Catherine Keener). At first, the young man reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.

Black Space Winnipeg's film series are followed with a free reception and panel discussion (9:00 PM in PLATFORM centre for photographic + digital arts). Our panel attempts to explore the following topics; interracial relationships, halloween and cultural appropriation, and race and horror. Hear panelists discuss narratives within the film as we interact with community members on Thursday, October 12, 2017.
