About TimesTalks: “Queen & Slim”

Melena Ryzik, culture reporter for The New York Times, hosts a prerelease screening of the unflinching new drama “Queen & Slim,” followed by a conversation with the film’s Emmy Award-winning writer-producer Lena Waithe (Netflix’s “Master of None”).

Directed by Grammy Award-winning filmmaker Melina Matsoukas (Beyonce’s “Formation” and HBO’s “Insecure”), “Queen & Slim” features Academy Award-nominated actor Daniel Kaluuya (“Get Out,” “Us”) and Jodie Turner-Smith (in her first starring feature-film role) as a black man and woman who, while on a forgettable first date in Ohio, 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 and the two are forced to go on the run.

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to hear Waithe discuss the making of this consciousness-raising love story that also confronts the staggering human toll of racism and the life-shattering price of violence.
