We Are Parable and Behind The Lens present a very special screening of the highly anticipated Queen & Slim. Introduced by Aisha Badmus from Behind The Lens, the screening will also be followed by exclusive panel discussion with some of the UK’s most prominent filmmakers, including Femi Oyeniran, Fiona Lamptey and Mo Ali, who'll discuss the film’s themes as well as some of their challenges they've faced when attempting to get their stories on screen.

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.
