Twelve Years a Slave

Film Synopsis:
Solomon Northup, a free Black man living in New York, is lured away from home, kidnapped, and enslaved. Thrust into the plantation system, Northup struggles to survive, hold onto his dignity, and find a way to return home to his family.  An adaptation of Northup’s 1853 narrative of his ordeal, director Steve McQueen recreates the world of the plantation with attention to the terror, violence, and keenly observed details that figure centrally in the original text.
