Filmmaker Steve McQueen, who will make two documentaries for the BBC, will continue to delve into race and racism in the UK. It’s a unifying theme for five independent films that make up their little axe series (in Spain, in Movistar +). One will examine the development of the black power movement in Britain; the other will examine how many black children there were in the 1960s and 1970s, four times as many as white students, They are educationally segregated and sent to special education schools after being assigned to the “informal” category, which limits their educational and career development opportunities. In fact, this is the theme of the last chapter of the little axe series.

It was during the filming of this award-winning film series that McQueen conceived these two documentaries, which were selected as the best film of 2020 by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and named as the best film of the year by many professional media lists. Directed by filmmaker George amponsah, the film will penetrate into the movement and its incubation in the late 1960s through his fight against police brutality and racism, which is the theme of another little axe mangrove. The tape will include recordings of lesser known American Wrestling idols such as Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and Stockley Carmichael’s different experiences during their visit to the UK, as well as recordings of other sports leaders in the country, such as Althea Jones lekoint, MD, She was a researcher and leader of the British Panther movement in the 1960s and 1970s, darcus Howe (journalist and political activist) and Roy SAWH (one of the spokesmen of the movement at that time).

Subnormal will take over the fledgling lyttanya Shannon and explore the education scandal from the perspective of parents, teachers and activists, who are trying to make it clear that the BBC calls it “one of the biggest scandals in the history of British education”. The BBC studio will be responsible for the international distribution of the documentary. “Looking back shows what we have achieved today. “These two documentaries tell us how far we need to go to achieve freedom and justice,” the director of 12 years of slavery said in a statement. He added that many of the participants in these documentaries will “tell their stories for the first time.”.
