Dear White People is a comedy first premiering at Sundance Film Festival. With its limited release to theaters coming closer, the film just got its red band trailer released, along with a short clip from it.
The Justin Simien-directed satirical drama emphasizes on the way Hollywood treats black characters in films, with the story of an African-American on a university campus full of white people. The title of the film comes from activist Samantha White's (Tessa Thompson) radio show of the same name in the movie, also called Dear White People. As she fights for the rights of her nation's hall, things turn in the wrong direction once a geek goes undercover in the show's remonstrations.
Alongside Thompson, Dear White People also stars Teyonah Parris, Brandon P. Bell, Kyle Gallner, Malcolm Barrett, Brittany Curran, Marque Richardson, and Dennis Haysbert. The Sundance-award-winning film screened at the BMI London Film Festival on Thursday (Oct. 9) and Friday, with a third screening scheduled for October 19.
Dear White People is scheduled to open in theaters in the U.S. for a limited period on October 17. Both the red band trailer and the clip from the movie can be seen below. Note that the former could possibly seem offensive to some.
