      How long is the road to freedom

      The end of the second episode had me in tears. In the majestic and vast music of Africa, witness the inheritance and changes of the Quint family, generation after generation, from youth to middle age to old age, the pain of being enslaved, the regret of loss, and how long the road to freedom is. The beliefs of ancestors flowed deeply into the blood of each generation of the Quint family. Although the body is imprisoned, but remember your name, your soul is free. In fact, how many people in...

      "I never wanted to be your kind!"

      Very very exciting. It is a very moving and deeply moving story. The kind of destruction and abuse of human nature is still unfamiliar to us today, but it is rare for us to see the desperate struggle of black slaves to maintain their self-esteem and personality in the play. It is admirable for a slave to live hopelessly in the same condition as a beast and yet still manage to retain a sense of honor and a lofty spirit.
              Twice in the play, a white man says to a black slave with...

      living characters

      The play consists of just a few episodes and tells the story of almost four generations fighting for freedom. Every generation, every character is very delicately portrayed. The most impressive among them are Quinta, Guisey and George.

      Kunta's existence in the play is more like a god. The characteristics of God are creation and protection. Kunta came from Africa, not only with a new blood, but with a spirit, the so-called warrior. This spirit seems to have become a symbol in...

      Another history of black blood and tears

      A film with the same theme as Twelve Years a Slave.

      When kunta was sold to the United States, at the beginning, the coachman who made soy sauce was actually the butler of Enano in Black Sail. Has anyone noticed? . .

      The first generation of juffury in Nigeria, the second generation of kunta, was trafficked to the United States as slaves. . . In the fourth generation, a white and black chicken jorge was born. In the fifth generation, his son black smith and his father...

      For the sake of Matthew Goode, it turned out to be such an excellent mini-series. The film tells the history of enslavement and blood and tears of Africans through the lives of a generation. The most impressive thing is the "ritual" of naming their children, that The music and drums full of African characteristics are soul-stirring, and everything becomes mysterious and sacred under the witness of the starry night. Human life and dignity are so noble that no one is allowed to trample on...
