Here at 3BLACKDOT, we want to make exciting work with today’s boldest creators and Queen & Slim is our keystone. 3BLACKDOT is proud to have created, produced, and co-financed Queen & Slim, a groundbreaking feature film that demonstrates our belief and willingness to take risks and bet on unique voices that we truly believe in.
Queen & Slim is from the minds of Emmy award-winning writer Lena Waithe, visionary director Melina Matsoukas, and Oscar-nominated actor Daniel Kaluuya. We were excited to partner with Lena because we align with her fresh, unique perspective. Lena doesn’t just write; she aims to start a movement. As an original and prominent voice of her generation, Waithe stands apart from the rest due to her talent, as well for having a direct connection to fans, atypical for most Hollywood writers.
Queen & Slim is primed to ride the zeitgeist of compelling storytelling. Arriving on the scene like a modern Bonnie & Clyde, the story doesn’t shy away from hard truths of racial injustice and institutional violence in today’s charged political climate. Always unapologetic, we at 3BLACKDOT are excited to empower new voices and perspectives, as well as participate in one of the most relevant conversations of today. The message of Queen & Slim is one we’re proud to support, as it aligns firmly with our core values and beliefs.
Timely, topical, and charged, Queen & Slim should resonate deeply with today’s audience. Queen & Slim hits theaters worldwide on November 27, 2019 and was produced in collaboration with Makeready Studios and Universal Pictures.
