12 Years A Slave

12 Years A Slave

Masterpiece  |  July 1, 2015

It is 1841, and Northup, an accomplished, free citizen of New York, is kidnapped and sold into slavery. Stripped of his identity and deprived of all dignity, Northup is ultimately purchased by ruthless plantation owner Edwin Epps and must find the strength within to survive. This film is both an unflinching account of slavery in American history and a celebration of the indomitable power of hope.
