With a career as towering as Steve McQueen‘s, each new project brings with it ample expectation. And his latest effort, ‘Small Axe,’ has not disappointed.
Met with rapturous applause worldwide, the anthology series is comprised of five films – each of which share compelling stories of West Indian immigrants in London during the 1960s and 1970s.
To bring the stories to life, McQueen tapped a talented blend of names including John Boyega, Letitia Wright, Malachi Kirby, and Micheal Ward.
Praised for its raw, nuanced, and human storytelling, it’s made for a magnetic weekly watch on BBC One (and Amazon’s Prime Video in the US).
Ahead of the latest instalment, That Grape Juice‘s Jacqueline Shepherd sat down with McQueen (who created and directed ‘Axe’) to discuss his goals with the project and the future he hopes it inspires.
