Nate Parker released the following statement about the film: 

In 2014, following the death of Michael Brown, I traveled to Ferguson, Missouri to gain a better understanding of the tension between law enforcement and young men and women of color.

The most tragic moment of this trip arrived when I stood downtown between two infuriated groups of citizens. From one side comes yells of ‘Justice for Mike Brown’ and on the other ’Support Our Police.’ It became clear to me, instantly, the disconnect in our understanding of citizenship, law enforcement, and our responsibility to preserve American life.

As an American citizen, father, brother, son and artist, I felt compelled to use my platform as a filmmaker to respond to this crisis in a way that could not only promote social equity, but initiate a global culture shift that can result in the preservation of lives. If saving one life is the only thing this film achieves, it will have served its core purpose.

I have been waiting for this film. 

Ahead of the release of American Skin, Vertical Entertainment released a set of posters, designed by Gravillis.
