Of course this is only a trailer, but SO FAR this looks like a pretty good film. Dear White People directed by first timer Justin Simien approaches race on a college campus in a post “Higher Learning” world. The film stars Tyler James Williams , Tessa Thompson , Teyonah Parris, Brandon P Bell, Kyle Gallner , Brittany Curran , Dennis Haysbert and Peter Syvertsen .
Story of four African American students at an Ivy League college where a riot breaks out over a popular ‘African American’ themed party thrown by white students.
It looks refreshing, and promising. I doubt it will get a full release, so I’m going to go ahead and say Dear White People hits theaters in limited release on October 17, 2014.
