Fox Searchlight has released the official trailer for the highly anticipated film, The Birth of a Nation. The movie, directed by Nate Parker, was filmed in Savannah, Georgia, and set a record-breaking $17.5 million deal at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah this year.

It surpasses the previous record-holder, Little Miss Sunshine, which was also bought by Fox Searchlight executives for $10.5 million in 2006.

The film follow 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.

Take a look at the trailer below.
