A chick with drive who don’t take no jive. Nitehawk’s Midnite Live Sound Cinema event features blaxploitation essential Foxy Brown with a live musical score by Morricone Youth.

The lovely Pam Grier plays Foxy Brown (aka “a whole lotta woman”), a sexy bad ass who takes on a job as a high-class prostitute to get revenge on the mobsters who murdered her boyfriend. But it’s not even that straight-forward. He dead boyfriend was a governmental agent and those gangsters? Why, they’re a perverted and kinky couple. She also saves a drug addicted woman along the way. Violent and sexual (oh yes, there’s castration), Foxy Brown is a staple in the blaxploitation genre and you shouldn’t miss it re-imagined with a live score.

Morricone Youth is a New York City septet formed in 1999 dedicated to performing and recording old film and television soundtrack and library production music.
