2017 | Conversations | Bay Street Theater
The 25th Anniversary will host a special event for Universal Pictures’ breakout hit GET OUT, from writer/director/producer Jordan Peele. The critically acclaimed speculative thriller tells the story of a young African-American man who visits his white girlfriend’s family estate… and becomes ensnared in a more sinister real reason for the invitation. The event will explore scenes from the groundbreaking film and welcome a conversation about its themes, as well as their relevance to today’s political and cultural climate.
Peele, fellow GET OUT producers Jason Blum and Sean McKittrick, and stars Daniel Kaluuya (one of 2017’s Variety 10 Actors to Watch honorees) and Allison Williams will be in attendance.
Moderated by Eric Kohn, chief film critic and deputy editor for Indiewire, and chairman of the New York Film Critics Circle.
