As Nate Parker Controversy Continues, AFI Cancels ‘Birth of a Nation’ Screening
Fox Searchlight may be continuing their fall release plans for Nate Parker‘s ‘The Birth of the Nation,’ but that doesn’t mean other early screenings will go according to plan. The American Film Institute announced on Tuesday they’ve canceled a planned screening of this film this Friday in wake of Parker’s 1999 sexual assault case that’s recently garnered attention, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
