FROM THIS EPISODE

Steve McQueen talks with The Business contributor John Horn about his Oscar-nominated film 12 Years a Slave. The movie has been well received critically and has made nearly $110 million worldwide. McQueen hopes that the movie will continue to generate conversations about slavery -- then and now -- and that inside the film business, it will prove to Hollywood studios that there's a market for non-blockbuster movies.

Steve McQueen 22 MIN, 47 SEC

Filmmaker Steve McQueen talks with The Business contributor John Horn about 12 Years a Slave. The movie has made nearly $110 million worldwide. McQueen talks about his hope that the movie, which was financed independently, can be an example to Hollywood studios that audiences want more than blockbusters. Not only that, he hopes they see that "challenging" lower-budgeted films can be another form of revenue for them. At one point, Horn asks McQueen about the comparison of his film to Spielberg's Schindler’s List. The usually stoic filmmaker gets choked up at the memory of seeing the film when it opened on the upper East Side of New York City.
