SYNOPSIS

Lifelong friends Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal co-wrote and star in this timely and wildly entertaining story about the intersection of race and class set against the backdrop of a rapidly gentrifying Oakland.

Collin (Diggs) must make it through his final three days of probation for a chance at a new beginning. He and his troublemaking childhood best friend, Miles (Casal), work as movers, and when Collin witnesses a police shooting, the two men’s friendship is tested as they grapple with identity and their changed realities in the neighborhood they grew up in.

Bursting with energy, style, and humor, and infused with the spirit of rap, hip hop, and spoken word, Blindspotting, boldly directed by Carlos López Estrada in his feature film debut, is a provocative hometown love letter that glistens with humanity.

Blindspotting will be released by Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment label in association with Codeblack Films and Snoot Entertainment.

She contributed “Big Spender” (co-written with label mate “Amine” to the chart-dominating Official Soundtrack for 50 Shades Freed, and it clocked over 10 million Spotify streams. Additionally, she garnered widespread praise from Refinery29, Baeble Music, Complex, stupidDOPE, is and more.

Now, Selfless positions her for big things on the horizon.
