Selma movie billboards...

There is a whole host of movie biopics at the multiplex this holiday season, from the likes of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, to Louie Zamperini in Unbroken and Alan Turing in The Imitation Game, but one film stands out as being more relevant and timely than ever, and that is Ava DuVernay's biopic Selma, about civil rights leader, Martin Luther King, Jr.

Rather than chronicling the inspirational activist's life in full, the film cleverly focuses on the three-month period in 1965 when he led the civil rights marches from Selma to the Alabama state capital of Montgomery, to help quicken the passage of President Johnson's Voting Rights Act.

The portrait billboard version for Selma was first spied on November 26 above Hollywood & Highland, whilst the landscape version was snapped along La Brea Avenue on December 21, 2014.

This film reminds us that 'one dream can change a world', but also shows that in this day and age there is still so much work to do overcome injustice and inequality.
