Sundance Winner – Audience & Jury – Birth of a Nation Opens in October!

Birth of a Nation

In 1915, D.W. Griffith made the film Birth of a Nation – universally acclaimed for its brilliance, but very much a record of the racial biases of the time.

In 2015, Nate Parker wrote, directed, produced and starred in Birth of a Nation – the story of Nat Turner, who led an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom.

Fox Searchlight bought the film for $17 million and has announced an awards season opening date. Follow the jump for details.
