12 Years a Slave is the story of  Solomon Northup, a free black man from upstate New York, who was abducted and sold into slavery in the pre-Civil War United States. Facing cruelty at the hands of a malevolent slave owner, 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, Solomon's chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist will forever alter his life.
Steve McQueen is a British film director, producer, screenwriter, and video artist. He is a winner of the Caméra d'Or and two BAFTAs.
