SMALL AXE is an anthology series comprised of five original films from Academy Award, BAFTA, and Golden Globe-winning filmmaker Steve McQueen (HUNGER, 12 YEARS A SLAVE). Set from the late 1960s to the mid 1980s, the films 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.
