Carlos López Estrada / USA 2017 / 94 min / Cert 15
An unlikely but stunning American indie-film, Blindspotting tackles issues of race and class in Oakland, USA and it featured at the Sundance 2018 Festival. With a tight script and nail-biting finish, Estrada calls out the harshness of the state parole system through the story of one black man who is desperate to break free of its tyranny by completing the last three days of his parole without incident. Ingeniously, writer/actors Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal have produced a comedy wrapper for a serious and moving issue within American society. Watch out for multiple awards to be given to this directorial debut from Carlos Lopez Estrada and its scriptwriting stars. ‘ Mike McCahill, The Guardian.
