Why this film?
Jordan Peele became the first African American to win the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, and the first African American to be nominated for producing, writing and directing in the same year. The film is loaded with social commentary and serves as an entertaining springboard for an engaging panel discussion regarding race and identity, as part of the university’s series of events this January focussed on race, identity and inclusion.
