Hollywood stays away from addressing issues is what McQueen feels

Steve McQueen believes that Hollywood doesn’t produce enough films which look at the period of slavery. The 44-year-old British film director said that compared to movies based on other periods of history, Hollywood hasn’t made enough films addressing slavery, Contactmusic reported. The BAFTA Award-winning director believes that somehow people do not want to look at this particular time in history. McQueen’s historical drama 12 Years A Slave is based on the real life story of Solomon Northup – a free African-American who was kidnapped and sold into slavery in 1841.Subscribe to me on YouTube
