A CHICK WITH DRIVE WHO DON'T TAKE NO JIVE!

Bold, black and beautiful, Pam Grier exploded onto screens in the 1970s and blasted a new path for ass-kicking women in film. Quentin Tarantino has called her the first female action hero. She’s been nominated for a Golden Globe, an Emmy and a SAG Award. From THE BIG DOLL HOUSE to COFFY to JACKIE BROWN to THE L WORD, Grier has been powerful, sexy and always, without fail, completely badass.

Foxy Brown is a sexy but streetwise lady whose ne'er-do-well brother Link (Huggy Bear Antonio Fargas) is a drug dealer who owes mobsters 20,000 dollars. To get the hoods off his back, Link names Foxy's boyfriend as a government agent trying to wipe out organized crime, and the mob soon has him rubbed out. But Hell hath no fury like Foxy Brown scorned; posing as a hooker to get the inside scoop on the mob, she goes on a crusade to find out who murdered her man, and she exacts revenge with the help of a local activist group. FOXY BROWN is one of Pam Grier's greatest films a true standout in the incredible world of Blaxploitation filmmaking.

Screening in 35mm film.
