Nate Parker is a bonafide UTS favorite.
The 32-year-old underrated actor wrote, directed and stars in the upcoming film ‘The Birth of a Nation,’ which recently premiered at the Sundance Film festival.
Parker put up his own money for the project. He was so passionate about the film he took 7 years to get it done.
He ignored objections from Hollywood producers that movies with Black leads don’t play internationally. He told his agents that he would not act in another role except for this project.
It paid off.
‘The Birth of a Nation’ has just concluded the “fiercest bidding war Sundance has ever seen,” eventually being sold at a previously unheard of $17.5 million.
