Sundance’s 2014 award-winning film (U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent), Dear White People released an official red band trailer. (That NSFW trailer is available online, the one above is the official theatrical trailer.)

Justin Simien‘s directorial debut focuses on black students at a predominantly white Ivy League university. A riot occurs after an African-American-themed party is planned by white students.

The film tackles having a racial identity in a so-called post-racial America while one creates an unique path in this world.

“Justin Simien is a funny, fresh and current voice with his finger on the Millennials’ pulse,” said Roadside’s Howard Cohen. “His crowd-pleasing Dear White People took Sundance by storm, with its sly and extremely topical satire sparking conversations about our supposed ‘post-racial,’ 21st century America.”

Tessa Thompson and Tyler Williams play two out of the four black students featured in the film. Effie T. BrownJulia LebedevAngel LopezAnn Le and Lena Waithe all produced the film.  Leonid Lebedev and Stephanie Allain executive produced the film.

The film is slated for a Friday, Oct. 17, 2014 release in select theaters. It will open up in theaters nationwide on Friday, Oct. 24, 2014.
