101 Studios Nabs Burden with Garrett Hedlund, Forest Whitaker

-

Newly-formed 101 Studios has announced the release date and new stills for their forthcoming film Burden, which opens in theaters for a limited launch on November 1 with a continued rollout through the month of November. Burden has been edited down 20 minutes from the film’s premiere at Sundance in 2018. The film is the winner of the 2018 Audience Awards at Sundance and Nantucket Film Festivals, and was written and directed by first-time filmmaker Andrew Heckler. You can check out new stills from the film in our gallery.

Burden tells the incredible true story of Michael “Mike” Burden (Garrett Hedlund), an ardent young member of the South Carolina Ku Klux Klan who rose to the rank of Grand Dragon – and walked away from all of it with the help of a new love and an unlikely ally, the African American religious leader and social activist Reverend David Kennedy (Forest Whitaker). The film’s cast additionally includes Tom Wilkinson, Andrea Riseborough, Tess Harper, and Crystal Fox. The film also stars Usher.

In support of the film, five-time Grammy award winner Chris Stapleton will release an original song for the film self-titled: “Burden.” Stay tuned for details.
