To coincide with the ‘Juneteenth’ freedom celebrations in the US, we are screening this award-winning Sundance Film Festival premiering feature debut from exciting new filmmaker Channing Godfrey Peoples. Miss Juneteenth tells the story of Turquoise Jones (an exceptional performance from Nicole Beharie), a Texan single mother and former Miss Juneteenth pageant winner. Having had her life rerouted by her pregnancy, Turquoise wants her 15-year-old daughter Kai (Alexis Chikaeze) to win the same pageant, enabling her to get the college scholarship that could prove life-changing.

Warmly received by both audiences and critics, Miss Juneteenth was one of the best films of 2020 and didn’t manage to get a physical theatrical release in the UK thanks to the Covid pandemic. We are sure this will win over the hearts and minds of our GCPH audience.
