When I saw this in my inbox, I forgot that this film was coming out & got it confused with this one. It would have been fitting considering who is, currently, the next US President.
It’s actually the second trailer for the upcoming slave rebellion film of the same name.
Set against the antebellum South, THE BIRTH OF A NATION follows Nat Turner, a literate slave and preacher, whose financially strained owner, Samuel Turner, 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.
