Steve Mcqueen: Meet The Filmmaker



Join filmmaker Steve McQueen ("Shame") as he discusses 12 Years a Slave, his new film that’s based on an incredible true story of one man’s fight for survival and freedom in the pre–Civil War United States. Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty, as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, his chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt) forever alters his life.
