Formed in 1990, R&B group TLC were rock ‘n roll from the start. Kicking off their careers in baggy jeans with accompanying condoms attached, their songs and videos promoted safe sex, woman’s pleasure, being yourself and the importance of loyal friendships. They were pioneers in the industry – breaking boundaries and questioning how women, specifically black women, were seen and portrayed in music. Behind the hits and Grammys, however, lay chronic illness, abusive relationships, bankruptcy and grief. With exclusive access to the band in the run up to their 2023 tour, Matt Kay’s film captures the essence of a band that influenced a generation.
The film screening will be followed by a conversation with director Matt Kay and special guests.
Open Captions - spoken dialogue and sound effects in the film will be converted to text and appear on screen.
