NEW TRAILER: Burning Sands - on Netflix March 10
Prepare to cross the Burning Sands because on March 10,
it's all about the brotherhood.
Netflix releases the trailer for its original film Burning Sands, a powerful, coming-of-age drama that explores the bonds of fraternity and exposes how far some are willing to go in the name of brotherhood.
View the official trailer here:
The film was selected for the 2017 Sundance Film Festival US Dramatic Competition and will be available to Netflix members worldwide on Friday, March 10th.
Burning Sands stars Trevor Jackson (ABC's American Crime) in a breakout performance, along with Alfre Woodard, Steve Harris, Trevante Rhodes, Tosin Cole, DeRon Horton, Imani Hakim and Serayah. It is directed and co-written by Gerard McMurray (producer, Fruitvale Station).
The film was produced by Stephanie Allain (Beyond the Lights), Jason Michael Berman (Birth of a Nation), Reginald Hudlin (Django Unchained) and Mel Jones (Dear White People). Common also contributed an original song, "The Cross".
Burning Sands takes you on a raw, voyeuristic journey of fraternity pledging through the eyes of one favored pledgee, who is torn between honoring a code of silence or standing up against the intensifying violence of underground hazing. Led by a breakthrough performance by Trevor Jackson, director Gerard McMurray's feature directorial debut brings an emotional honesty to the classic tale of "rites of passage" and the complicated bonds of brotherhood.
