Get Out addresses racism in America, particularly as a legacy of slavery, using both horror and satire. Daniel Kaluuya stars as a young man who goes to visit his white girlfriend’s parents, and begins to notice strange behaviour in the Black staff employed by the family. As more chilling events unfold and the truth is discovered, the story reaches a dramatic climax.
Get Out' will be presented at the Martin Luther King Jr building on Saturday 16th June, by the Young Ambassadors of the International Slavery Museum. The screening will include an introduction to the film by the Ambassadors group, who will also host a post film dicsussion exploring the film, as well as issues of representation and legacies of slavery. As well as this, there will also be opportunity to view objects from the museum's collection.
This is a fantastic opportunity to see a much talked-about and Oscar winning film for free! A few lucky attendees will also be able to win a limited edition screenprint designed by our Young Ambassadors with artist Scott Duffey of Listen Creative and Toucan Tango.
