The trailer for Birth Of A Nation will only be a glimpse of the purported masterpiece directed and starring Nate Parker. It has already received Oscar Buzz after doing very well at The Sundance Film festival. Along with being in a tug of war between Netflix and Fox Searchlight. Which resulted in Fox Searchlight becoming victorious in purchasing the film despite bidding less than Netflix. Such is Nate Parker’s belief in the film, he wanted a cinematic release and this deserves it!
“Set against the antebellum South, THE BIRTH OF A NATION follows Nat Turner (Nate Parker), a literate slave and preacher, whose financially strained owner, Samuel Turner (Armie Hammer), accepts an offer to use Nat’s preaching to subdue unruly slaves. As he witnesses countless atrocities – against himself and his fellow slaves – Nat orchestrates an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom.”
