In an exclusive, behind-the-scenes clip from Us, the intricacies and thought process behind the look of “the tethered” is discussed and director Jordan Peele highlights the importance of Black representation and Black women being realistically portrayed in film.

Watch the clip below:

Here’s a description of the movie: The story is set in the present day and follows Adelaide and Gabe Wilson (Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke) as they take their kids (Shahadi Wright Joseph and Evan Alex) to Adelaide’s old childhood beachside home in Northern California for the summer. After a day at the beach with the Tyler family (which includes Elisabeth Moss and Tim Heidecker), Adelaide — who’s haunted by a lingering trauma from her past — becomes increasingly more paranoid that something bad will happen to her family. As night falls, the Wilsons see four figures holding hands and standing silently at the bottom of their driveway.
