The CSRD & the Philosophy and Film Series present «Get Out.»

A surprise cinematic sensation in 2017, “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.

Join us for a screening of the «Get Out,» followed by discussion that will explore the central themes of the film including racism and privilege, as well as how and why the film became a sensation and what it means now and moving forward.

Free | Open to the public | Light refreshments provided

About the Film:
«Get Out” is a speculative thriller from the mind of Jordan Peele and Blumhouse Productions. Chris, a young African-American man and Rose, his white girlfriend, have reached the “meet the parents” milestone of dating. During a weekend getaway at her parent’s estate, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship. As the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead Chris to a truth that he could have never imagined as he becomes ensnared in a sinister plot.

This film is rated R and may not be suitable for all viewers.
