DESCRIPTION:
(from Amazon's press release, September 2020) Amazon Prime Video announced today that Small Axe, the highly anticipated anthology series created and directed by Academy Award, BAFTA, and Golden Globe-winning filmmaker Steve McQueen (Hunger, 12 Years A Slave), will premiere on Friday, November 20 with the first film, Mangrove starring Letitia Wright & Shaun Parkes. The four additional films will debut each Friday, including Lovers Rock (11/27) starring Micheal Ward & Amarah-Jae St. Aubyn, Education (12/4) featuring Kenyah Sandy, Alex Wheatle (12/11) with newcomer Sheyi Cole, and the final film Red, White and Blue (12/18) starring John Boyega. Prime Video, in partnership with the series commissioners, the BBC, released the official trailer today featuring new footage from all five films, which will also air during the 72nd Emmy Awards telecast. Small Axe is an anthology comprised of five original films set from the late 1960s to the mid 1980s that tell personal stories from London's West Indian community, whose lives have been shaped by their own force of will despite rampant racism and discrimination. This title is derived from the African proverb, "If you are the big tree, we are the small axe."
