Blindspotting is a 2018 American comedy-drama film directed by Carlos López Estrada, and written by Rafael Casal and Daveed Diggs. The film had its world premiere on January 18, 2018 in the U.S. Dramatic Competition section at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. It was released on July 20, 2018. The film follows two childhood friends, convicted felon Collin (Diggs) and troublemaker Miles (Casal), through the last three days of Collin's year-long probation. Collin lives in a probation house and struggles with trying to get his life in order and put his criminal past behind him, while the short-tempered and rowdy Miles searches for trouble and embraces the "street" lifestyle. One night while waiting anxiously for a red light to change in order to get home for his 11pm curfew, Collin witnesses a white police officer (Embry) gun down a black civilian, an incident that haunts Collin over the next few days. Miles purchases a gun which ends up in the hands of his young son Sean, an incident which horrifies Sean's mother Ashley (Cephas Jones). Collin begins to realize that Miles' recklessness will likely land him into trouble, and the two are set on an explosive collision course. The screenplay for Blindspotting was written by Rafael Casal and Daveed Diggs over a period of 9 years. The pair grew up in Oakland, California and felt that cinematic portrayals of the San Francisco Bay Area have constantly "missed something". They wanted to draw attention to the culture, community, and sense of "heightened reality" that shape life in Oakland. The film addresses issues of gentrification, police violence, and racism.

In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, black telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) discovers a magical key to professional success, which propels him into a macabre universe of "powercalling" that leads to material glory. But the upswing in Cassius' career raises serious red flags with his girlfriend Detroit (Tessa Thompson), a performance artist and minimum-wage striver who's secretly part of a Banksy-style activist collective. As his friends and co-workers organize in protest of corporate oppression, Cassius falls under the spell of his company's cocaine-snorting CEO Steve (Armie Hammer), who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams. A surreal comedy about rising up and selling out, Sorry to Bother You marks the feature-film debut of Boots Riley — founder and front man of the Bay Area hip-hop collective The Coup — whose evocative story-raps formed the basis for the film's unique, feverishly inventive screenplay. The film also features performances from Omari Hardwick, Jermaine Fowler, Steven Yeun, Danny Glover and Terry Crews, as well as the voice-over talent of Patton Oswalt, David Cross and Rosario Dawson. Principal photography began in June 2017 in Oakland. Sorry to Bother You premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on January 20, 2018, and was theatrically released in the United States on July 6, 2018, by Annapurna Pictures. The film received largely positive reviews from critics, who praised the cast and concept, as well as Riley's script and direction.
