The Birth of a Nation Trailer
Published Apr 15, 2016Having won both the Audience Award and the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, the film world is buzzing over Nate Parker's directorial debut The Birth of a Nation. We'll have to wait until Oscar season to see it, but today we get our first taste with a new trailer.
Parker wrote and directed the film, and he also stars as Nat Turner — a preacher who has been hired to subdue unruly slaves in the American south. As he witnesses more and more atrocities, he leads the slaves in an uprising.
The Birth of a Nation has been compared to both 12 Years a Slave and Schindler's List. Watch a trailer for the film below.
