Get Out (AND VOTE)

 

Thursday, May 17 AT 7:30PM | FREE ADMISSION (WITH A PROMISE TO VOTE IN THE UPCOMING ELECTIONS)!

“Enjoy food trucks, and register to vote, if not already registered. Followed by short audience talkback and reception in the courtyard.

Don’t find yourself in the sunken place, GET OUT…AND VOTE! 

Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate at her family’s secluded home. At first, Chris 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 never could have imagined.

Get Out is a clever, brilliantly written and wonderfully uncomfortable neo horror movie, challenging racial stereotypes and viewer’ expectations in almost every scene. Get Out is a film that you’ll be having a conversation about long after the movie finishes, and brings to light discussions we need to have in our communities. (2017, USA, Jordan Peele, 104 minutes , Rated R)”

One response to ““Get Out” (and Vote) film

  1. Gripping horror movie, attended by about 200 people, about interracial black and white dating in America, but leading to a surprise ending dealing with fear and unexpected plot changes. However, this movie sponsored by Young Voters of Pima County had nothing to do with voting, and Gubernatorial candidate Steve Farley was present, trying to present stats of lack of minority voting in last elections. One angry young black man spoke that it was irresponsible of these movie sponsors to try to usurp the message of the movie (which was about racism & violence against Blacks) to that of elections/voting.Yes, Blacks can be in the “sunken place of oppression” with respect with voting, but not to the extent portrayed in this horror movie. Some audience members tried to talk about the elections (i.e. Obama, Hillary, Bernie, Trump) but that was not very successful. White privilege was clearly shown in the movie, but there was Black humor as well, shown by the awkwardness of White people trying to be liberal in accepting an interracial dating situation…until the insidiousness of the plot is revealed.
