About Claudine

Diahann Carroll is radiant in a Oscar-nominated performance as Claudine, a strong-willed single mother raising six kids in Harlem, whose budding relationship with a gregarious garbage collector (James Earl Jones) is stressed by the difficulty of getting by in an oppressive system.

An empathetic chronicle of both Black working-class struggle and Black joy, Claudine is a bittersweet celebration of family set to a sunny soul soundtrack composed by Curtis Mayfield and performed by Gladys Knight & the Pips

Screening as part of the Bad Mums: Motherhood In Cinema season to accompany the touring exhibition Acts Of Creation: On Art and Motherhood.
