Us (Jordan Peele, 2019) – June 3rd

Us is signature Peele  a 1970s-inspired horror flick that wears its references on its sleeve, grapples with Big Ideas and crawls with genuinely creepy tension, lightened with dashes of well-earned humor. This is a family-horror melodrama that ponders huge philosophical questions about our existence and identity. But it doesn’t just pose conspiracy theories and ask what if? Us brings all those nightmares to life and visualizes the worst-case scenario.

As Hollywood continues to reveal the multitude of ways throughout the years it has held people back from its screen and seeing themselves represented, artists like Jordan Peele are creating complicated and entertaining films that allow audiences to do deep dives into their own lives, experiences and cultural histories to see how they participate in creating the current world that we all exist in.

The Downtown Independent is honored and excited to be able to support an artist like Peele and show his work that alternately provokes goose-bumps, hilarious laughter and intense reflection amongst the screams.
Bring a friend. See it a few times. Betcha can’t just watch it once!

Perfect (Eddie Alcazar, 2018)- June 2nd

 

Produced and scored by Flying Lotus and executive-produced by Steven Soderbergh, PERFECT introduces Garrett Wareing as an emotionally-troubled young man. His mother (Abbie Cornish) sends him to a clinic, where modernist serenity whispers soothing promises of perfection. By planting plug-and-play characteristics directly into his own body, he is relieved of his dark, twisted visions, but his body pays the price for purity of mind. A festival favorite from writer and director Eddie Alcazar – one of Filmmaker’s 25 to Watch.

 

Directed by: Eddie Alcazar

Soundtrack by: Flying Lotus

Starring: Garrett Wareing, Courtney Eaton, Tao Okamoto with Maurice Compte and Abbie Cornish

Festivals: SXSW (World Premiere) 2018, Sitges 2018, Brooklyn Horror Film Festival 2018, London Sci-Fi Festival 2019
