We Are Parable presents a special screening of Queen & Slim at Streatham Odeon with a Q&A chaired by The British Blacklist’s Akua Gyamfi.
While on a forgettable first date together in Ohio, a black man and a black woman, are pulled over for a minor traffic infraction. The situation escalates, with sudden and tragic results, when the man kills the police officer in self-defense.
Terrified and in fear for their lives, the man, a retail employee, and the woman, a criminal defense lawyer, are forced to go on the run. But the incident is captured on video and goes viral, and the couple unwittingly becomes a symbol of trauma, terror, grief, and pain for people across the country.
As they drive, these two unlikely fugitives will discover themselves and each other in the direst and desperate circumstances and will forge a deep and powerful love that will reveal their shared humanity and shape the rest of their lives.
Joining a legacy of films such as Bonnie and Clyde and Thelma & Louise, Queen & Slim is a powerful, consciousness-raising love story that confronts the staggering human toll of racism and the life-shattering price of violence.
We Are Parable presents Queen & Slim at Streatham Odeon, Saturday 25th January 6 pm. Find out more and book your tickets here.
