Executive Producer Common recently told THR about the flick: “I think we’re making a statement without having to preach. Everything doesn’t have to be only protests…because it’s about us understanding each other.”
He added, “It’s about us understanding as human beings. For us as viewers to get the experience we see in Burning Sands, we get a better understanding of what it is to be a young, black man growing up trying to find himself.”
Burning Sands will make its premiere on Netflix in March.
