Also in The Birth of a Nation Review, Nat begins to witness the atrocities towards his fellow slaves at the hands of their masters, which makes his conscience become uneasy. This urges causes him to fight back against his slave masters, rather than submitting to them.

Nat at the same time also suffers from his own master/owner together  with those around him. All this inspires Nat to do more than just speaking out against the wrongs that he sees happening around him and to him.

The Birth of a Nation became a breakout hit at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival (winning the Audience Award and the Grand Jury Prize).

The Birth of a Nation tells the story of Nat Turner, his struggles, spiritual and religious beliefs, and also the intelligence he acquires from years of reading and studying The Bible. All this are what contributes to fuel his actions both before and after he becomes a revolutionary.
