Friday, February 7
8:15 pm
Cost: Free
WUD Film presents a free screening of Queen & Slim (2019).

USA | 132 minutes | R | P&P DVD | Dir. Melina Matsoukas

Slim and Queen's first date takes an unexpected turn when a policeman pulls them over for a minor traffic violation. When the situation escalates, Slim takes the officer's gun and shoots him in self-defense. Now labelled cop killers in the media, Slim and Queen feel that they have no choice but to go on the run and evade the law. When a video of the incident goes viral, the unwitting outlaws soon become a symbol of trauma, terror, grief, and pain for people all across the country.

"Waithe and Matzoukas to create a new form of protest art. Their film isn't meant to lionize these two everyday people-turned-folk heroes, but to celebrate their strength and pride," - Peter Travers, The Rolling Stone

 

Assistive Screening Accommodations for Patrons with Disability

  • Closed Captions and Visually Impaired Narration not available
  • Assisted Listening Device Amplification available

These free screenings are intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff, and Union members and guests.
