Queen & Slim

What's it about?

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.

Who's in it?

Chloë Sevigny - Mrs. Shepherd

Who made it?

Melina Matsoukas - Director

Lena Waithe - Writer
