In this special 58th New York Film Festival edition of the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, NYFF Director of Programming Dennis Lim connects with director Steve McQueen to discuss Red, White, and Blue, one of the three entries in McQueen’s Small Axe anthology playing at this year’s NYFF. Red, White, and Blue is a vivid adaptation of a true story set in the early ’80s and features an impassioned yet nuanced performance from John Boyega as Leroy Logan, a member of the London Metropolitan Police force who both witnessed and experienced first-hand the organization’s fundamental racism.
Get tickets for tonight’s screening at the Brooklyn drive-in or nationwide virtual tickets here. Through Monday, we will also present virtual encore screenings of McQueen’s Lovers Rock and Mangrove. Get tickets here. Small Axe at the 58th NYFF is presented by Campari.
