St Mary's Film Club: The Birth of a Nation

June 27, 2019

Join us in the Parish Room on Wednesday 10th July at 8pm to watch Nate Parker's, The Birth of a Nation which sees Nat Turner, a literate slave and preacher in the antebellum South, orchestrate an uprising.

Set against the antebellum South, The Birth of a Nation follows Nat Turner, a literate slave preacher, whose financially strained owner, Samuel Turner, accepts an offer to use Nat's preaching to suppress the supposed unruly slaves of multiple southern plantations for profit. As he witnesses countless atrocities by white slave-owning southerners - against himself and his fellow slaves - Nat gathers trusted followers believing that God has selected him as his chosen instrument of freedom and orchestrates an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom.


Refreshments will be provided and everybody is welcome!
