MMT has secured passes to an advanced screening of the highly anticipated film THE BIRTH OF A NATION on Monday, October 3.
Set against the antebellum South and based on a true story, “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, his wife Cherry (Aja Naomi King), and fellow slaves – Nat orchestrates an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom.
