Get Out Film Discussion

Aviva Briefel, professor of English and Cinema Studies at Bowdoin College, lead us in a look at this social thriller from the mind of Jordan Peele. Following a screening of specific scenes, we broke into small group discussion to explore the films central themes. Get Out, which was nominated for 4 Academy Awards in 2018, blends elements of horror with a gripping commentary on race in America. The film received an Oscar for best original screenplay.
