Pam Grier in person Feb 2, 7pm @ The Varsity
Presented by TD in celebration of Black History Month, CFC (Canadian Film Centre) and Clement Virgo are pleased to host a special evening in conversation with iconic actress Pam Grier. For more than 40 years, starting out as cinema's ‘first female action star', Grier has been a trailblazer for strong women on-screen. From her early starring roles in hit blaxploitation films Foxy Brown and Coffy, to Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown, and the acclaimed Showtime series “The L Word”, she has captivated and engaged audiences with her character portrayals. The evening will explore her inspirations for entering the film business, the choices she has made as an actor, and the challenges she has faced along the way. Grier will also draw on her personal experiences to discuss the impact of being a role model both on and off the screen.
