"A minimum requirement of black friends to not seem racist has just been raised to two." Just last month, a quick teaser trailer debuted for the upcoming indie Dear White People, a racially charged comedy that debuted at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Now a full theatrical trailer has arrived showing even more of the hilarity in the film starring Tyler James Williams, Tessa Thompson, Teyonha Parris, Brandon P. Bell and Dennis Haysbert. This seems like a provocative and amusing comedy with biting racial humor and political satire done extremely well, and that's not always easy to do. Watch the trailer below!
Here's the theatrical trailer for Justin Simien's Dear White People from the film's YouTube page:
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, Brandon P. Bell and Dennis Haysbert star in the film which premiered at Sundance and Roadside Attractions will release Dear White People on October 17th this fall.
