Powerful New Birth Of A Nation Promo Poster Released

Submitted by on July 17, 2016 – 4:29 pmNo Comment

A powerful new poster for the highly anticipated American period drama film, The Birth of a Nation, has been released.

The image features the movie’s star Nate Parker with an American flag noose around his neck. The poster is particularly poignant in light of the recent police shootings of black men and the Black Lives Matter movement.

In The Birth of a Nation, Parker plays Nat Turner, 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 fellow slaves, Nat organizes an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom.

Parker also wrote, produced and directed The Birth of a Nation, which hits theaters everywhere October 7, 2016.
