Teary-Eyed Nate Parker Says He Doesn't Care What Critics Say, Think About Him



Parker became choked up trying to answer a question regarding the negative reviews 'American Skin' received.
He will continue to make films despite his decades-old rape charge leading to increased scrutiny in the U.S.
Parker said he hopes American Skin can save lives.

“I'm not here to make a headline. I have five daughters and if I'm really blessed they will marry five great men, they'll have children, inevitably they'll have boys and they will look like me. If they are no more safe in their time than I am in this time I have failed as a human being, I have failed as a father and I've failed as an artist. I don't want to get involved in anything that takes away from the urgency of that."
