Lazy Dog Films. "Blindspotting (2018): Identity Politics In A Gentrifying Oakland." (Posted on Youtube: October 18, 2020) ["Blindspotting, released in 2018, follows Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal as two men navigating through a gentrifying Oakland. With Collin (Diggs) just days away from his probation, he witnesses a police shooting, sending him down a path where he questions his identity. Written over ten years, Diggs and Casal tackle complex issues from race to identity with ease. Blindspotting’s core theme is explored through a black and white man's eyes as their environment forces them to put their identity in perspective. Blindspotting, in its 90-minute runtime, manages to present issues like racism, police brutality, and gentrification while examining toxic masculinity and identity without feeling bloated."]
