NATE PARKER GET 17.5 MILLION DOLLAR DISTRIBUTION DEAL AT SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL


Feeling Rebloggy
Congratulations to Nate Parker on receiving one of the largest deals in Sundance Film Festival history for his film, “The Birth of a Nation”! 



On [January 26, 2016], Parker’s “The Birth of a Nation”, a biopic about Nat Turner, an enslaved preacher who led one of the nation’s largest slave rebellions in 1831, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, where it received a standing ovation. Parker, who wrote, directed, produced, and stars in the film, was inspired by Nat Turner’s riveting story in college and refused to accept any other roles until he got the opportunity to bring the revolutionary to life.
  

Now, Parker has received a record breaking $17.5 million distribution deal from Fox Searchlight.

Clearly, Parker's movie is not going to suffer the same fate that "Lila and Eve" did at the hands of MGM. It appears MGM bought "Lila and Eve" and never did a big release to the theaters, even though it did well at Sundance and was later well reviewed at places like Amazon.
