STEVE MCQUEEN CALLS OUT THE INDUSTRY FOR LACK OF DIVERSITY.

September 2020 | The Independent

Director Steve McQueen has called on the British film industry to address the “blatant racism” within its ranks.

"Writing in The Guardian, the 12 Years a Slave filmmaker argued that the UK is far behind the United States when it comes to representation behind the camera.

“Last year, I visited a TV-film set in London,” he wrote. “It felt like I had walked out of one environment, the London I was surrounded by, into another, a place that was alien to me.

“I could not believe the whiteness of the set. I made three films in the States and it seems like nothing has really changed in the interim in Britain. The UK is so far behind in terms of representation, it’s shameful.”
