And now for something completely different:
Dear White People (movie trailer)
DEAR WHITE PEOPLE
A satire about being a Black face in a white place. DEAR WHITE PEOPLE follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where a riot breaks out over a popular “African American” themed party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film will explore racial identity in “post-racial” America while weaving a universal story of forging one’s unique path in the world.Click here to help bring this film to theaters: http://bit.ly/DWPYoTu
Remember when Black movies didn’t necessarily star a dude in a fat suit and a wig? Or have major plot twists timed to Gospel numbers for no apparent reason? No? Damn…
Well believe it or not there was a time when “Black Art-House” was a thing. When movies like Do The Right Thing, Hollywood Shuffle, and Boyz N The Hood were breaking box office records as well as making us laugh, cry, and think in ways movies hadn’t before.
The humble producers of DEAR WHITE PEOPLE, a satire about being a black face in a white place, long to bring those days back. But we can’t do it without you!
We pieced together what resources we had to make this trailer in order to entice investors for our planned million dollar feature. Armed with this trailer and your support we plan to make this film a reality. Click here to help bring this film to theaters: http://bit.ly/DWPYoTu
I want to see this.
Wow. That’s a damned good trailer. I want to see this movie. I want to see this movie in a theater. They haven’t made a movie like this in a long, long, long, long, long time.
To put things in perspective and make you feel old, School Daze came out 24 years ago.
Help this movie exist, we need it.
This looks brilliant
