This Birth of A Nation, Sings a New Song

  • Penelope Poulou

The Birth of a Nation, about the 1831 uprising of a slave community in the American south, is a fiery account of a rebellion against injustice and oppression. Based on a true story, the film offers an unflinching look at the brutal event. First time filmmaker Nate Parker reclaims the film title “The Birth of a Nation,” from D.W. Griffith's 1915 pro Ku Klux Klan interpretation of the Civil War. Parker presents a true story of Nat Turner, a slave preacher, who decided to right the wrongs against his people by taking up arms.
