SHRIEK continues our new Summer/Fall season with one of the most successful and truly groundbreaking horror films fresh from theaters: GET OUT! We cannot wait to watch and discuss the world's most successful horror film directed by, written by, and starring Black talent! This film is so intricate and powerful, we don't want to spoil it by showing you the trailer. But if you must view it, you can find it here.
Join Heather, Evan and our special guest, filmmaker, writer, and actress Abie Ekenezar to discuss this controversial film. The protagonist may be male, but at SHRIEK we recognize the power of intersectionality and the power of all female characters. To honor the groundbreaking success and audacity of this film, SHRIEK is donating 50% of our ticket sales to LANGSTON Seattle's African American Film Festival.
Doors: 7:00pm. Opening Talk & Film: 7:30pm
