The New Black Film Collective presents Queens of Comedy, part of the BFI Comedy Genius Blockbuster Season. Featuring a live comedy set from Ninia Benjamin (3 Non-Blondes) and a post-screening Q&A hosted by award-winning Glaswegian comic Janey Godley.

Whoopi Goldberg stars as nightclub singer Deloris, who’s placed in the witness protection programme at a San Francisco convent. Her arrival revolutionises the place, and its out-of-tune choir, to the dismay of the Mother Superior (Maggie Smith). Relive one of the most successful comedies of the 1990s, with a genius performance from Goldberg, quotable one-liners, and a killer soundtrack.

Preceded by a live comedy set from Ninia Benjamin, and a screening of the short film I Cherish Women (4m), runner up of the Audience Choice Award at the Women Over Fifty Film Festival 2018, introduced by director, Judith Stillman.

Followed by a Q&A about women, comedy and everything inbetween with Ninia Benjamin and Janey Godley.
