Sundance Hit 'The Birth of a Nation' Gets "Living" Poster

The Sundance standout from actor-writer-director Nate Parker hits theaters Oct. 7.

The Birth of a Nation has debuted its first poster...with a little twist.

The movie has gotten a "living" poster — a digital video that sees the graphic design of slave revolt leader Nat Turner being bled onto the screen, eventually yielding the movie's poster.

Nate Parker wrote, directed, starred in and produced the film, which follows the story of Turner and his failed slave rebellion in the antebellum south.

The Sundance standout, which sold for $17.5 million to Fox Searchlight, further prompted the diversity debate during the whitewashed awards season.
