Filmmaker Steve McQueen returns to his fine art beginnings with an exhibition and his first new film since “12 Years A Slave”.
Made using reworked Super-8 footage of a young boy in Grenada shot by Dutch cinematographer Robby Miller. The previously unused footage was made during a trip McQueen made to Grenada in 2001. There, McQueen came across the young man we briefly come to know in the film “Ashes”, the name the of film’s protagonist.
Recognizing a quality in him that translated beautifully onto the screen, McQueen had wanted to cast Ashes in the project he was working on there but was unable to do so. Instead, he asked Miller to take footage of the young man.When McQueen returned to the island in 2009, he learned of Ashes’ murder. Shaken by this, McQueen’s latest short film and exhibition are an intimate ode to the effervescence of youth and the tragic death of a young man that embodied this vivacity so well.
