Unfortunately I got the NAACP screening of the film about 30 mins after it started and the room was full but my faith prevailed and I had an empty seat waiting just for me. Took three steps to my seat and watched this compelling movie.
At first, my thoughts were how similar to “12 Years A Slave” this film is. Then something happened. I began to be moved and inspired by the actors’ ability to tell this compelling story about Nat Turner. I had know Idea what the movie was about because I didn’t read prior reviews or watched the movie’s trailer.
By the end of “Birth,” my emotions and feelings had bubbled to the surface. This is a great movie … a compelling story about Nat Turner told by the cohesiveness of great script and directing and the input of fine actors and their craftsmanship.
At the Q &A I took some pics and I thanked Nate for making this incredible film.
The real jewel is I did a story on Nat Turner back in Jr. High School for Black History and Heritage Month.
