Open Roof 2019: Us and Yuka
Open Roof kicks off its tenth anniversary season with the classic soul and R&B sounds of YUKA, followed by a screening of Jordan Peele’s thought-provoking and ‘soon to be a horror classic’ film Us. The film stars Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o as Adelaide Wilson, a woman haunted by a traumatic experience from her past. Wilson returns to her beach side childhood home with her husband and two children only to have her worst fears become a reality when four masked strangers descend upon the house in the middle of the night. Vox called it “a thrilling, blood-curdling allegory about a self-destructing America,” Us is filled with a beautifully bizarre mix of pop culture references, dark humour and seat-jumping scares.

The Festival will be partnering with a range of different local food trucks throughout the summer, including Fidel Gastro’s, Buster's Sea Cove and Rancho Relaxo, which will be the perfect pairing for a refreshing beer from ORF’s long-standing partner, Amsterdam Brewery.
