Bold New Spanish Poster For Steve McQueen's 12 Years A Slave

It is with thudding inevitability that Oscar talk rears it somewhat ugly head at the tail end of the summer every year, but at the same time it is often a welcome reminder of all the exciting films that are on their way into cinemas soon.

One film that is getting talked up for the Oscars no end, following its recent showing in Toronto, is Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave.

The film is reportedly a very intense dramatisation of slavery in America and the life of a real person, Solomon Northup, who was kidnapped and sold into slavery.

Today a new Spanish poster for the film surfaced online, which I first saw at Criterioncast. It uses a very evocative image of a curved tree branch in front of a cotton field. It’s a bold and highly effective choice.

12 Years a Slave will be released in America on the 18th of October and in the UK on the 24th of January. And in Spain on the 31st of October.
