“I feel like we often neglect one of the most powerful ways that we communicate and we can encourage more communication on a subject. And right now I feel like the way we talk about race in this country is broken. Maybe this will fuck shit up in the wrong way, I dunno. But I do feel like art and communication is like that’s the one tool we have against the true horrors of the world, which is violence. I hope that this is an inclusive experience and I hope that it inspires people to just talk.” — Jordan Peele on writing GET OUT
Watch the Q&A video with Chance the Rapper, Jordan Peele and some of the cast of the film; Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, and Milton “Lil Rel” Howery. They talked about the need of a film like this and their love for the genre.
Synopsis: 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 with Missy (Catherine Keener) and Dean (Bradley Whitford). 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 could have never imagined.
Then check out the images from Get Out Art Gallery featuring artwork inspired by Peele’s suspense thriller. Six pieces of striking original artwork, inspired by the film, are being showcased from artists Corey Barksdale, Frank Morrison, Sindisio Nyoni, Jermaine Rogers, Sharlene Artsy, and Taj Tenfold.
