The film we’ve all wished for may finally be here. Excited to check this out next year!
A first look at images from Nate Parker’s long awaited ‘The Birth of a Nation” have arrived. Nat Parker wrote, directed and is staring in the pivotal role.
The official synopsis reads: Set against the antebellum South, this story follows Nat Turner, a literate slave preacher, whose financially strained owner, Samuel Turner, accepts an offer to use Nat’s preaching to subdue unruly slaves. After witnessing countless atrocities against fellow slaves, Nat devises a plan to lead his people to freedom.
Along side Nate Parker, Armie Hammer, Aja Naomi King, Earle Haley, Gabrielle Union and Mark Boone, Jr are cast members.
The World Premiere for this film will be at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.
