Birth of a Nation (OC)
(OC) means this is an Open Caption version of our feature movie. Captions are titles designed for the deaf and hard of hearing. In addition to the actor's dialogue, captions include notations for sound effects, music, and other background noises, when these elements are important to the on-screen action. The Lyric Theatre will play an Open Caption version of the movie provided it exists; we apologize in advance if we announce an Open Caption screening and discover when we receive the movie--within a few days of the movie’s run--that an Open Caption version does not in fact exist Set against the antebellum South, THE BIRTH OF A NATION follows Nat Turner, a literate slave and preacher, whose financially strained owner, Samuel Turner, accepts an offer to use Nat's preaching to subdue unruly slaves. As he witnesses countless atrocities--against himself and his fellow slaves--Nat orchestrates an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom. There will be an Open Caption screening of BIRTH OF A NATION--provided it exists--at 10:00AM on Monday, November 28th.
