The Birth of a Nation Movie Poster

I’ve just spotted this teaser poster of The Birth of a Nation, the upcoming period drama movie written and directed by Nate Parker about the real-life story of Nat Turner, an African-American slave who led a slave rebellion in Virginia in 1831:

Plot synopsis:
“Nat Turner (portrayed by Nate Parker), as a slave boy, is taught to read so he can study the Bible and be a preacher to fellow slaves. When Turner’s master takes him across the country on a preaching tour to profit from his preaching, Turner begins to see the scope of slavery and decides to become a different leader.”

Whoever replaced the horizontal strips with those chains had a great idea! And yep, there were only 24 stars on the American flag in 1831.

The release date of The Birth of a Nation is set to October 7, 2016.

Update – An additional teaser poster:
