Black Lives Matter Film ‘American Skin’ Gets Eight-Minute Ovation at Venice Film Festival
Venice (AFP) – Controversial US director Nate Parker said Monday that he hopes his powerful new film about police violence against black men will help save lives.
“American Skin” received an eight-minute standing ovation after it premiered at the Venice film festival, with Spike Lee — who travelled to Italy to support Parker — comparing its impact to “scoring a goal to win the World Cup or a home run at the bottom of the ninth in American parlance”.

The veteran maker of “Do The Right Thing” and “Malcolm X” had earlier declared that “I haven’t been affected by a film like this… in a long, long time.”

The movie about a black Iraq war veteran, whose 14-year-old son is killed by police when they stop their car in a wealthy white area, is a blistering indictment of institutional racism.

It culminates in the avenging father taking his son’s killer hostage and putting him — and racist police attitudes — on trial after storming his local precinct.

Parker said he hopes the film will start a debate within US police forces about the way they deal with black people.

“This experience is happening all too often in America. I hopeful that it can resonate and people will hopefully be moved into action.

“Our mantra was take a beat [stop and think] and save a live. We can make a film that inspires not only conversation but real action. If we can save one life… this film will be the most important thing we have ever done,” he added.

– ‘Tone deaf’ about rape case –

Parker’s acclaimed debut 2016 film about a slave revolt, “The Birth of a Nation”, was derailed after it emerged that he was accused of raping a fellow student while at university. She later killed herself.

Parker’s presence added further flames to a row raging at the festival over the inclusion of a new film by Roman Polanski, who has spent decades as a fugitive from US justice for the rape of a 13-year-old girl

So the lesson from this movie, It is ok to rape people and people should storm police stations because that wont get lives taken at all!!!

They don't really care whether the truth gets out, because the public no longer knows what's meant by "the truth."

Well, I mean, no one can tell the difference anymore between what's real and what's fake.

Anyway, the point is, I can tell you all of this, right out in the open, because it doesn't matter who knows about it. They won't know whether to believe it or not.-

A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

No one is above the law. Don't break the law and you won't put yourself in the situation of getting shot. Blacks act like their violence is justified or in some way okay. Not all blacks but the ones with the BLM mindset do. How about teaching your children better so they don't live a life of crime and die young. Ever think of that?
