This Friday, join Drunk Feminist Films as they cheer on the women of 90s crime thriller Set It Off. Jada Pinkett-Smith, Vivica A. Fox, Kimberly Elise, and Queen Latifah (in a glorious openly queer role) band together and form a bank-robbing crew to fight against the system that oppresses them. Make fun of white saviour cops and respectability politics while raising a glass to these four women who, quite frankly, are not having it.
The screening will be guest-hosted by Alicia Bunyan-Sampson and Gyalcast co-founder Sajae Elder, and will offer subtitles and ASL interpretation for the commentary portion of the evening. Signature cocktails (and mocktails!) will be available for purchase, along with red and white wine and Steam Whistle Pilsner.
The show begins at 8:30 p.m. at the Royal Cinema (608 College St.). Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors.
