Price Drop Alert

This wrenching, but ultimately triumphant black history DVD is one of the most powerful films ever made on the subject of slavery in America.

Culled from the writings of the free African-American on whose memoir the story is based, the black history DVD, 12 YEARS A SLAVE, tells the story of Solomon Northup (played spectacularly by Chiwetel Ejiofor). Northup was kidnapped in 1841 in Washington, D.C., and soon found himself in a life of servitude. Throughout his years of bondage, Northup is bought and sold several times. Though his first master is relatively kind, he is soon sold to a terrible slave master. The horrors that Northup endures and witnesses serve as an indictment for the entire era in which the film is set.

12 YEARS A SLAVE was shot on location in Louisiana, and the cinematography is breathtaking. It is the first feature film directed by an African-American (Steve McQueen) to win a Best Picture Oscar. Own this instantly classic black history DVD and share in the spectacle of one of the most critically acclaimed movies on this most harrowing of subjects.
