    Nate Parker directed and stars in "Birth of a Nation"

Filmed in Savannah, director/writer Nate Parker's "Birth of a Nation" was the object of a bidding war at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. Here is the studio tagline: "Set against the antebellum South, 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 and his fellow slaves - Nat orchestrates an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom."
