To celebrate the start of the season, we (Studium Generale and ESN-Rotterdam) are organising our famous Open Air Cinema.
We will be screening The Florida Project:
Halley and her 6-year-old daughter Moonee live in a motel just outside Disney World Orlando in Florida. Precocious Moonee views the poverty-stricken strip of motels and fast food outlets as colourful and exciting. The food is sweet, there are few rules and supervision isn’t required. At most, Moonee wants to keep volatile manager Bobby (Willem Dafoe, one of the few professional actors in the film) on her good side even though his frustration amuses her.
The camera lovingly races along as Moonee and her friends tear around the motel. The editing is energetic, the tone is loud and funny. However, deep drama underlies this warm film. Moonee’s youthful perspective means she can’t see the financial misery she and her mum are in.
Cushions and blankets will be provided (First come, first served). You can buy your drinks and snacks at Erasmus Paviljoen.
Alternative dates are 12, 17 and 26 September to ensure the best possible weather, so check out our updates regularly. Watch the trailer.
