Twelve Years A Slave: Before the American Civil War, a well-educated and honest black man who was born free in New York state and can play violin, is kidnapped and sold into slavery. After having been kept in bondage for 12 years in Louisiana by various masters, Northup finally manages to escape and goes home. It is story that seems far away from our lives, but the feelings and emotions are universal: life, freedom, dignity and faith. (为奴十二年:美国内战前夕,一位受过高等教育、为人正直、会拉小提琴的纽约自由黑人不幸被绑架并贩卖为奴隶。十二年的奴隶生活,历经磨难,九死一生的他唯一不曾放弃的就是回家的愿望。这是一个距离我们非常遥远但这种感觉很熟悉的关于坚守生命、自由、尊严和信念的故事。)
