Before Justin Simien’s new Netflix series, Dear White People, there was the original theatrical film that started it all! When the film opened in theaters, it broke domestic box office records for a crowdfunded film. (Indiewire)
If you’re inclined, you can watch the original film starring Tessa Thompson (Creed, Selma, HBO’s “Westworld”) that inspired the series, available now on Digital via iTunes, and on Blu-ray and DVD.
The film was scored by award-winning composer Kathryn Bostic. In addition to the score album, the various artists album featuring favorite songs from the movie is also out now on Lakeshore Records. See below for movie soundtrack purchase details and more.
