Jordan Peele on 'Get Out' and writing for the Black audience

Featured spread is from Get Out: The Complete Annotated Screenplay from Inventory Press. Featuring copious annotations by Peele himself and an enlightening essay by noted scholar of Black Horror and Afrofuturism, Tananarive Due, this pocket-sized paperback should be required reading for every person in America. Writing on his responsibility as a filmmaker towards Black audiences, Peele says, "I came into this movie thinking I'm going to give Black audiences the horror movie they want but are not getting. It's going to be postmodern commentary on the state of horror itself. Scream for Black people. This film is about the voicelessness that we endure when we're in the theater watching a screen—not having any control over what's happening in the plot. We're put in this dark room, and there's almost no representation of us on that screen to connect with. If I could do my part to alleviate the lack of representation, it would be a good thing because Black audiences are not given the opportunity to work through our fears and pain in this way nearly enough."
