The Birth Of A Nation

The Birth Of A Nation Release Date: October 7, 2016

In the big screen remake of The Birth Of A Nation, set against the antebellum South, The Birth of a Nation follows Nat Turner (Nate Parker), 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 his fellow slaves – Nat orchestrates and uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom.

Over 100 years ago, in 1915, the original The Birth Of A Nation arrived in theaters. It was a silent, black and white film that starred Lillian Gish, and was directed by D.W. Griffith.

The original film is so old that it debuted in theaters over a dozen years before the Academy Awards were even in existence.
