smallaxe

With four acclaimed feature films now under his belt, Steve McQueen is about to make his first foray into television this year with an Amazon Prime miniseries called Small Axe. This isn’t your standard TV series, however, instead it is more like an anthology of five films, each one exploring a different historical event from the late 1960s to the mid 1980s involving Black pride and resilience. The first trailer showcases an episode titled “Mangrove”, about the Mangrove March in 1970 (the 50th anniversary of which was yesterday). With a cast that includes Letitia Wright, John Boyega, Malachi Kirby, Shaun Parkes, Rochenda Sandall, Alex Jennings and Jack Lowden, the first three episodes will premiere at the New York Film Festival on September 25th followed by a release on Amazon sometime in the near future.
