Director Steve McQueen, also known for the film “12 Years A Slave,” has a new film anthology out on Amazon Prime Video. The series is called “Small Axe” and tells personal stories from London’s West Indian community as lives are shaped by resilience amid widespread racism. The second film in the five-part series, “Lover’s Rock,” is out this week. KPCC’s John Horn spoke with McQueen about the making of the series, how the idea of community shapes his storytelling and the importance of the small revolutions taking place at people’s kitchen tables.
