As I said yesterday, when Tambay does his usual year in review and what S & A covered during the past year, 12 Years A Slave will no doubt be the film we most wrote about (With The Butler coming in second).
Every year, there always seems to be a film like that, which dominates. Last year it was Django Unchained, and the year before that, it was The Help (though you can argue that it really wasn’t a black movie – just a film with a bunch of black people in it). For 2013, it’s 12 Years A Slave.
What will be the film next year? Who knows? Stay tuned and keep reading…
So forgive us since we have, yet, another article about the film, but no doubt one of interest. Thanks to the observant eye of regular reader and contributor Jana Sante (who I recently spent a really delightful day with in Brixton London two weeks ago) who sent me this interview with Steve McQueen, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Michael Fassbender when they appeared recently on Charlie Rose’s show on PBS/Bloomberg TV.
It’s really teriffic interview about the film and the only video I’ve seen of the three of them together talking about the film.
Watch it here:
