The “Underground Railroad” is about to launch on Amazon Prime Video. The series is about a young woman trying to escape the horrors of slavery. Here is the German trailer:
Barry Jenkins is one of the best directors in Hollywood after two Oscar-winning films, “Moonlight” and “Beale Street”. Through his new historical miniseries, the director now continues his cinematic examination of the realities of life in the Afro-American population.
Thematically, “The Underground Railroad” is based on the famous novel of the same name by Coulson Whitehead, who won the 2017 Pulitzer Prize. The title refers to a real network of hideouts, smugglers, and people smugglers who helped many slaves escape from the southern states in the nineteenth century. Whitehead’s novel takes the name literally: in its alternate reality, the “Underground Railroad” is actually a secret railway network.
