About

Blaxploitation Films: Cleopatra Jones (1973)

Tamara Dobson stars as an undercover government agent working with police forces in the war on drugs whilst using fashion modelling as her cover and excuse to travel. A classic action-comedy of the Blaxploitation era.

To mark the fiftieth anniversary of the invention of the Blaxploitation genre, 2021's film series for Black History Month will showcase a ground-breaking film each Wednesday throughout October. Influenced by the Black Power Movement, films of the Blaxploitation era were amongst the first where Black characters are centralised within narratives as heroes alongside soundtracks set to funk and soul music. Although not without their controversies, their impact has endured.

Director Jack Starrett, English, USA, 1973, 89 min, 15
