30 years before the American Civil War an educated slave attempts to free his people... Nate Parker, who both stars and directs, has stunned the US film industry by bringing this true story to the screen for only $8.5 million. An independent feature film that especially resonates in the Divided States of Donald Trump and a perfect way to close this year's FIFF, as the Festival never shies away from difficult subjects.
