Blindspotting centers on Collin (Daveed Diggs), an Oakland denizen who must stay on the right path during his final three days of probation. Unfortunately his childhood friend Miles (Rafael Casal) is not exactly a positive influence, and when Collin witnesses a police shooting all bets are off.
The film was a labor of love for Diggs and Casal, as the actors wrote and produced the Blindspotting. “It feels like our whole lives,” said Diggs who was seen last year in Wonder. “It’s been nearly 10 years of work on this project. Getting out is unbelievable, actually. Most of those 10 years was us being like ‘This will never happen, I don’t know why we’re working on this.’ And then not being able to put it down.”
