Event Information

Regarded as one of the very best of the Blaxploitation genre, 1973 feature Coffy has been described as ‘one of the most entertaining films ever made’ by Quentin Tarantino. 

Made in the early 70s, Coffy catapulted Pam Grier to stardom and instant iconic status following solid roles in earlier ‘chicks in chains’ films. Here she plays nurse ‘Coffy’ Coffin, seeking vigilante justice when her little sister is hospitalised by a smack pusher. Coffy uses her body, bullets and blades to get justice, working her way to the top of the criminal ring. But as she nears the top, she finds the level of corruption is closer to home than she thinks…

The screening will be followed by a live onstage Q&A with Pam Grier.

In association with the BFI and Cine-Excess.
