Join us for the screening of the 2017 film, “Get Out.” A surprise cinematic sensation, “Get Out” blends elements of the horror genre with a biting critique of the state of racial discourse and politics in American culture. This film, equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary, asks viewers to question what they "know" about the world, evaluate their own worldview and examine social injustices.
A discussion and Q&A with the audience follows the screening.
