Small Axe Pt. 1 with Rachel Osbourne

Small Axe is a British anthology film series, created and directed by Steve McQueen. The anthology consists of five films that tell distinct stories about the lives of West Indian immigrants in London from the 1960s to the 1980s. The series premiered at Cannes film, got picked up by BBC and then Amazon. I’m joined by Rachel Osbourne of Julie Mango TV to discuss the anthology series’ as it directly relates to the Caribbean and its diaspora. We explore the name of the series, its focus around Black struggles with racism, accessibility to the full diaspora, coverage by black mainstream media and community connection.Caribbean Streaming Services to Explore in 2021Stay connected to Style & VibesKeep up here:  Website |  NewsletterLet’s talk here:  Twitter |  Instagram |  FacebookExecutive Produced by Kerry-Ann Reid-Brown of  Breadfruit MediaSupport the show (https://glow.fm/thestylevibesandpodcast/)
