From the archive
This film was last shown on 13 February 2020
Queen and Slim meet up for a forgettable first date, but on the drive home they are pulled over for a minor traffic infraction. When the situation escalates, the pair find themselves on the run: a Black Bonnie and Clyde. As they drive, these unlikely fugitives forge a deep and powerful love that will reveal their shared humanity and shape the rest of their lives.
Queen & Slim is the hotly anticipated debut from two-time Grammy winner Melina Matsoukas and award-winning screenwriter Lena Waithe. Stylish, provocative and powerful, the film is a tough look at systematic racism and police brutality in the US, and a thoroughly modern Black love story.
