Sundance Hit BLINDSPOTTING Coming to BFF, with Filmmakers!

BFF will screen the Opening Night Selection from the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, BLINDSPOTTING, on Wednesday, May 2nd  at 9:30pm at the AMC Theatre at 21c. Co-star Janina Gavankar  will attend, along with the film’s producer Jess Calder. They will participate in a Q&A after the screening. Get your tickets here!

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 López Estrada in his feature film debut, is a provocative hometown love letter that glistens with humanity.

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.

Janina Gavankar, is recognizable from her television work on True Blood, The L Word and Sleepy Hollow, and is well known in the gaming and technology industries. She also participated in BFF’s Diversity & Inclusion in STEAM panel at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.
