Director Steve McQueen
Shame represents another great feature in one of the best years for British film in living memory. Steve McQueen consolidates his reputation as one of the most gifted and confident directors, following his extraordinary feature debut Hunger. Shame is a mesmerising character drama boasting a superbly orchestrated soundtrack and cinematography and arguably the best performance to date by actor of the moment, Michael Fassbender. Fassbender plays Brandon, an affluent Manhattan based thirty something who plans his life around relentless sexual encounters and conquests until a visit from his wayward sister forces him to reassess his priorities. - Leeds International Film Festival 2011
Running Time 99m
Steve McQueen was born in London and studied at Chelsea School of Art and Goldsmiths College, after which he spent a year at the Tisch School of the Arts in New York. His art has been shown in museums around the world and has been acquired by major institutions, including the Guggenheim, the Tate and the Centre Pompidou. His feature films are Hunger (08), which screened at the Festival, and Shame (11).
