Get Out

Warning: *spoilers!*

In this episode of the Price Production Room podcast we discuss Jordan Peele’s first feature length film, Get Out.

Get Out follows a young African-American photographer on a visit to his white girlfriend’s parents’ home. The tag line sums up the deep horror of the film, “Just because you’re invited, doesn’t mean you’re welcome.” The film is funny, scary, and has sparked conversations (and even a viral challenge) throughout the country.

Featuring Alessandro Ago, Carla Della Gatta, Aubrey Hicks, and Erroll Southers
