The New Black Film Collective (TNBFC) & Poplar Union presents Black History Month meets Halloween in this free film screening of Jordan Peele’s latest film, Us..
After sending shockwaves across contemporary culture and setting a new standard for provocative, socially-conscious horror films with his directorial debut, Get Out, Academy Award®-winning visionary Jordan Peele returns with another original nightmare that he has written, directed and produced.
After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers (Emmy winner Elizabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon), Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home. When darkness falls, the Wilsons discover the silhouette of four figures holding hands as they stand in the driveway.
Us pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.
