Steve McQueen’s upcoming anthology of films is heading to the BBC towards the end of November, it’s been confirmed.
A short trailer has been revealed for Small Axe, Steve McQueen’s latest project. It’s an anthology of five films that explores London’s West Indian community between the 1960s and the 1980s, telling the story of the Windrush generation.
Small Axe is set to arrive on the BBC here in the UK and Amazon, the streaming platform everywhere else, on November 20th.
The series of films star Leticia Wright, John Boyega, Shaun Parkes and Sheyi Cole, among others. The anthology is also shot in part in Wolverhampton, which following its extended turn in Amazon’s recent How To Build A Girl, is surely now being dubbed the ‘Hollywood of the West Midlands.’ Or maybe that’s still wishful thinking on our part.
Small Axe marks McQueen’s first project since 2018’s Widows. He is currently also working on The Occupied City, a feature-length documentary about the Nazi occupation of Amsterdam.
