Acclaimed Steve McQueen series SMALL AXE premieres on BBC First this weekend

The first television project from Academy Award and BAFTA-winner Steve McQueen, this series of films for television is based on the real-life experiences of London’s West Indian community.

Set between 1969 and 1982, these standalone stories celebrate courage and community.

From a group of activists taking on a seemingly hopeless battle against police persecution, to a teenager experiencing a blues party full of dance, danger and romance, they’re a powerful reminder of how brave individuals can spark change.

Small Axe delivers a message our divided world needs to hear: even the most marginalised voicess can challenge the most powerful.
