Queen & Slim Synopsis

Director: Melina Matsoukas Staring: Daniel Kaluuya, Jodie Turner-Smith, Bokeem Woodbine

From two-time Grammy award winning director Melina Matsoukis, the visionary filmmaker behind this generation’s most powerful pop-culture experiences, including HBO’s insecure, the Emmy award-winning “thanksgiving” episode of Netflix’s master of none, and Beyoncé’s “formation,” and from trailblazing, Emmy-winning writer Lena Waithe (Netflix’s master of none), comes the unflinching new drama, Queen & Slim.

While on a forgettable first date together in Ohio, a black man (Get Out’s Daniel Kaluuya) and a black woman (Jodie Turner-Smith, in her first starring feature-film role), 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-defence.
Terrified and in fear for their lives, the man, a retail employee, and the woman, a criminal defence lawyer, are forced to go on the run. But the incident is captured on video and goes viral, and the couple unwittingly become 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 most dire and desperate of circumstances and will forge a deep and powerful love that will reveal their shared humanity and shape the rest of their lives.

We Are Parable is an events company that specialise in film exhibition, founded by husband and wife team Anthony and Teanne Andrews in 2013. Having worked with names such as Spike Lee, Ryan Coogler, Idris Elba, as well as organisations like The British Film Institute, Studio Canal and Entertainment One, they have established themselves by providing audiences with films that place Black people at the centre of their stories.
