Amazon Prime has launched a first look trailer at the first of Steve McQueen’s five-film anthology series, ‘Small Axe’.

Based on a true story, Small Axe celebrates little known stories of Black pride and resilience, like the Mangrove March. Learn more about what happens when even ordinary people stand up to police brutality and racial injustice to achieve something transformative.

Directed by McQueen, the episode stars Letitia Wright, Shaun Parkes, Malachi Kirby, Jack Lowden, Rochenda Sandall, Sam Spruell, Nathaniel Martello-White and Gary Beadle.

Also in trailers – Daniel Kaluuya and LaKeith Stanfield star in powerful new trailer for ‘Judas and the Black Messiah’

The project will arrive on Prime later in the year.
