THF FILM SERIES: Us

Web Premiere @ 4PM

Commentary by Tani Sanchez, Africana Studies

In her commentary, Sanchez takes an inside look at how writer and director Jordan Peele uses horror to comment on class, race and privilege in his acclaimed 2019 film about one family’s serene beach vacation that turns to chaos when their doppelgängers appear and begin to terrorize them.
