REDISCOVER THIS OVERLOOKED CLASSIC, STARRING DIAHANN CAROLL AND JAMES EARL JONES, THIS BLACK HISTORY MONTH. NOW RESTORED IN 4K!
In an Oscar-nominated performance, Diahann Carroll plays a black working-class mother struggling to make ends meet, offering an antidote to the testosterone-driven star-turns of the blaxploitation cycle.
Scripted by Lester Pine and Tina Pine, the film is driven by a powerful central performance from Carroll, who is ably supported by James Earl Jones.
The film also contains a memorable, socially conscious score by Curtis Mayfield with songs such as ‘On and On’ and ‘The Makings of You’ performed by Gladys Knight and the Pips. Claudine was also produced by Hannah Weinstein for the Third World Cinema Corporation, a company started by Weinstein and Ossie Davis, amongst others, to promote film roles for black actors and train black film practitioners.
