To celebrate the start of the year, we (Studium Generale & ESN-Rotterdam) are organising our famous Open Air Cinema.
We will be screening the dark comedy Sorry to Bother You :
Sorry to Bother You is the directorial debut by The Coup’s, Boots Riley.
In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, black telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) discovers a magical key to professional success, which propels him into a macabre universe with a disturbing likeness to our own. The upswing in Cassius’s career raises serious red flags with his brilliant girlfriend, Detroit (Tessa Thompson), a sign-twirling gallery artist who is secretly a part of a Banksy-style collective called Left Eye. But the unimaginable hits the fan when Cassius meets the company’s cocaine-snorting, orgy-hosting, obnoxious, and relentlessly optimistic CEO, Steve Lift (Armie Hammer).
The film also features performances from Omari Hardwick, Jermaine Fowler, Danny Glover, and Terry Crews.
Cushions and blankets will be provided (First come, first served). You can buy your drinks and snacks at Erasmus Paviljoen.
Alternative dates are 11, 16 and 18 September to ensure the best possible weather, so check out our updates regularly.
