BLINDSPOTTING

Collin (Daveed Diggs, "Hamilton") 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 changed realities in the rapidly-gentrifying neighborhood in which they grew up. Longtime friends and collaborators, Diggs and 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, CA. Bursting with energy, style and humor, and infused with the spirit of rap, hip hop and spoken word, BLINDSPOTTING, boldly directed by Carlos López Estrada in his feature film debut, is a provocative hometown love letter that glistens with humanity.
