"12 years of slavery" (2014), directed by Steve McQueen, is based on real events and tells the story of Solomon, a freed slave who lived with his wife and children, working as a Carpenter and violinist. After accepting a job offer in another city, is betrayed by his own talent in music, and in the year 1841 is kidnapped and forced to live as a slave and work on a plantation in Louisiana.

This is one of the most important films ever made, addressing the issue of slavery and the extreme southern United States racism. In addition, the screenplay by John Ridley, that follows a line that enhances the expressiveness, and the subtle soundtrack, signed by Hans Zimmer, contribute to portray with fidelity, one of the most striking passages in the history of mankind. The work was awarded with several awards, such as, the Oscar for best picture in 2014.
