Another twist in the Nate Parker saga ahead of his Venice Film Fest return after the rape trial outrage. Parker’s financial backers go public with an empassioned defense: ‘He was acquitted and is innocent." https://t.co/Bke4FZZNV5— Matthew Belloni (@THRMattBelloni) August 22, 2019
Tarak Ben Ammar and Mark Burg think Nate Parker deserves a second chance.
The two producers of 'American Skin' have zero reservations about working with him despite the controversy.
They say Parker was acquitted and is innocent, he's a great film director and 'American Skin' is a great movie,
'American Skin' tells the story of an Iraq War vet whose son is killed by a police officer.
Parker'll screen his new film, 'American Skin'at the Deauville American Film Festival in France.
Woody Allen's 'A Rainy Day in New York' will open the French event.
