  • Hi, I'm Melina Matsoukas.

  • I'm the director of 'Queen and Slim'

  • and also one of the producers.

  • This scene is when Daniel Kaluuya, who

  • plays Slim, and Queen, Jodie Turner-Smith,

  • first fall in love.

  • It represents their second date,

  • but also a moment that they are so determined

  • to have because they might not make it to the end.

  • They may not be afforded another chance to dance,

  • to connect, and ultimately, to fall in love.

  • "Oh, I don't drink."

  • "Maybe you should start."

  • The space is a juke joint, but it represents for them

  • a safe haven, a place where they are connected.

  • Thus, I named it The Underground

  • after The Underground Railroad.

  • I've always thought of their journey

  • as representing a reverse slave escape narrative

  • as they are black fugitives running from the north

  • traveling south.

  • They are protected here in the womb of their community,

  • and they utilize this fleeting moment of safety

  • to connect, and ultimately, to fall

  • in love for the first time.

  • The production design of the space

  • was modeled after the photography

  • of Birney Imes, who photographed the deep south.

  • And he has a book on juke joints

  • that I modeled some of the design after.

  • But I also modeled it after these beautiful hand-painted

  • landscapes that mark many shelters in Jamaica,

  • particularly outside of Kingston on my favorite beach

  • called Hellshire Beach.

  • I wanted the design to speak to the black diaspora

  • as well as the American South and all the subtle ways

  • in which the black community is connected.

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • The scene was scripted as if it

  • was meant to be their first dance at their wedding.

  • I remembered the feeling of watching 'West Side

  • Story,' one of my favorite films.

  • And when Tony sees and dances with Maria

  • for the first time, how they're

  • in this bubble shutting the world out around them.

  • And I wanted Queen and Slim to feel the same way

  • in that moment.

  • Another reference for this scene was 'In the Mood

  • for Love.'

  • I wanted them to feel shrouded in that love

  • and in that light and the color

  • and in these languid, poetic moments in a similar way

  • as Wong Kar-wai was so beautifully

  • able to paint in his film.

  • We also used Steadicam to dance with the actors.

  • We had set up the space so we could see and rotate 360

  • without seeing ourselves or equipment

  • as I wanted the camera to feel like part

  • of the choreography.

  • I wanted to use these long, languid shots to pull you

  • into this moment.

  • This is also one of the few times we

  • used a few slow motion shots.

  • It was important to make this moment somewhat surreal

  • so as to mirror the feeling you

  • get when you're lost in love and the world's slowing down

  • around you.

  • There's no one else in the room as they dance,

  • not literally, but figuratively.

  • The music drops out and we bring in for the first time

  • this beautifully composed theme

  • which represents their love.

  • We call it the 'Love Theme' and it

  • was composed by our amazing composer, Dev Hynes.

  • [MUSIC - DEV HYNES, 'LOVE THEME']

  • "What do you want?"

  • "I want a guy to show me myself.

  • I want him to love me so deeply

  • I'm not afraid to show him how ugly I can be.

  • I want him to show me scars I never knew I had."

  • It was a choice I made in the edit to take

  • their words from the next scene

  • and lay them over this first dance

  • so it's as if you can feel and hear her thoughts as she's

  • experiencing them in real time.

  • "And I want him to cherish the bruises they leave behind."

  • And as the song ends and the people around them

  • cheer the bands, it's as if they

  • are applauding their love.

  • This takes them back into real time

  • and they leave together, connected

  • and as one for the first time in their story.

  • [CHEERING]

  • [MUSIC - DEV HYNES, 'LOVE THEME']

  • "We should go."
