‘Birth Of A Nation’ Receives Premiere Date!

Nate Parker’s Birth Of A Nation received what was noted as being one of the largest standing ovations in film festival history when it premiered at Sundance.

The film, which marked Parker’s directorial debut and told the story of Nat Turner – a literate slave and preacher who orchestrated the slave rebellion, also made history after landing a $17.5 million Fox Searchlight deal- the largest purchase in Sundance history.

Now, the anticipation of a wide audience viewing the film is almost over. The Birth of A Nation will open nationwide, October 7, 2016.
