We’ve got our hands on the first official trailer of Burning Sands, the upcoming drama movie starring Trevor Jackson, Alfre Woodard, Steve Harris, Trevante Rhodes, Tosin Cole, DeRon Horton, Imani Hakim, and Serayah:
“In his freshman year of college, it seems Zurich has everything going for him; he has the respect of his teachers and university administration, the love and devotion of a wonderful girlfriend, and he’s been selected for admission to a prestigious black fraternity on campus. But as Zurich embarks on the Hell Week of pledging his fraternity, the harsh trials of entry into brotherhood begin to test the limits of his self-worth. As the intensifying abuse begins to become untenable, Zurich struggles to honor the fraternity’s code of silence, and the scaffolding of his life outside the frat begins to dismantle.”
Why are those young people so naively accepting hazing in the first place? Do they enjoy being tortured? Are they feeble minds who can’t think for themselves? What do you think?
The film is directed by Gerard McMurray. It will be released worldwide on Netflix on March 10th, 2017.
