Part of the Hammer Museum series The Contenders 2017.
Having developed the film before the results of the 2016 election were known, director Jordon Peele didn’t necessarily intend for his debut feature to resonate in the viscerally contemporary ways it does. Though it was promoted as a horror film, its true terror lies in the mirror it holds up to latent liberal racism and cultural appropriation. Set in locales that will be instantly familiar to anyone who’s visited 21st-century Manhattan or Connecticut, Get Out’s creeping dread feels very close to home. Vividly entertaining and urgently relevant, it may well be the defining film of our times.
A Q&A with director Jordan Peele follows the screening.
