Dear White People Teaser Trailer

After taking home the 2014 Sundance Film Festival's Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent, the indie comedy Dear White People is heading to theaters this fall. The indie is a provocative, racially charged satire about race relations at a time when we have our first African-American president. Four different black students are followed as a controversial event on an Ivy League campus creates issues with the students as they navigate campus life and racial politics at a predominantly white college. This looks like truly great satire, and it's nice to see something like this that doesn't have Tyler Perry's name attached to it. Watch this!

Here's the first teaser trailer for Justin Simien's Dear White People from Roadside Attractions:

Dear White People is written and directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Justin Simien making his feature debut. The film 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. Tyler James Williams, Tessa Thompson, Teyonha Parris and Brandon P. Bell and Dennis Haysbert star in the film which premiered at Sundance. Roadside Attractions will release Dear White People on October 17th this fall. For more updates visit the official site or follow @dearwhitepeople.

    This film has been in the making for years. I remember the director raised some money to make a trailer to sell this movie on Kickstarter. One of the first successful campaigns that I can remember. So good to see something go from start to finish with such success. Even if the film isn't great, good on ya Justin Simien. Good on ya

    I don't know if it's exactly movie-material, but if this were a TV show, I would totally be in.
