There are some things you can’t learn in school.

BLERDS, by J. Corey Buckner.

BLERDS follows DJ, Brandon, and Kiera, three Black middle school nerds as they set off across Washington DC in October of 2002 on a quest to reach a Star Wars Convention and meet the coolest Jedi in the galaxy: Samuel L Jackson.

A world premiere coming-of-age journey in the spirit of Goonies and Stand By Me from J. Corey Buckner. It’s a clear-eyed love-letter to the pop-culture tales that have become our modern mythology, an adventure through Black family joy and the perils of the world, as told through the lens of sci-fi fandom.

Hyperspecific Netflix Category: nerds · sci-fi · family · Black joy
