From the transatlantic slave trade in the 16th century to the conquest and subjugation of indigenous people in the 19th century to current race riots in major urban cities, the ideological pattern of intolerance, bigotry and prejudice has been omnipresent throughout history. “Station 13” depicts the representation of what initially appears to be ordinary men persecuted by society, men who are later revealed to be angels on earth. Inspired by the paintings of Caravaggio, Peter Paul Rubens, and conflicts during the civil rights movement, the film follows the blows of extraordinarily public transgressions where brutality and injustice lead the charge.
