Nate Parker Wins Audience Award for 'Birth of a Nation' at Sundance 2016

Nate Parker accepts the Audience Award: U.S. Dramatic for his film The Birth of a Nation during the awards ceremony for the 2016 Sundance Film Festival at Basin Recreation Field House on Saturday (January 30) in Park City, Utah.

The 36-year-old director recently told Vulture that presenting at Sundance sent him “through the roof” emotionally.

“The way the theater responded to different elements, it was like an orchestral movement,” Nate said. “Everything they did, they did together, whether it was laugh or cry or gasp or sit there in pin-drop silence. All of those things affected me because I felt like they were receiving it. It was actually being allowed into their soul.
