S: John Boyega, Letitia Wright, Shaun Parkes, Sheyi Cole, Kenyah Sandy, Robbie Gee.
The first project I’ve seen which is both television and film. Five stories looking at racial injustice in Britain. Hard to watch in one go, they are so profoundly upsetting. Ferocious odds and injustice are arrayed against the protagonists, yet hope is given and guidance. Is Steve McQueen the UK’s best director working right now?
(UK peeps, all five films are on BBC iPlayer.)
(American peeps, I believe they are on Amazon Prime Video.)
