‘Burning Sands’ Trailer Just Dropped, And It Gives A Fictional Raw & Uncut Look Inside Intense Hazing At HBCUs
The Burning Sands trailer just dropped and it looks SO good. Peep the first look and find out when it will premiere on Netflix inside…
Black Greeklife is about to take center stage in the upcoming Netflix original series Burning Sands. The new fictional drama will certainly drum up some controversy about intense, alleged hazing rituals at historically black colleges & universities. And to keep it all the way real, a lot of people are about to feel some type of way.
The film, which swept up awards at the Sundance Film Festival, will follow the journey of fraternity hazing through the eyes of one pledgee (played by "American Crime" star Trevor Jackson) who finds himself torn between honoring a code of silence or standing up against the violence of underground hazing.
In the new trailer, viewers see pledgees get kicked, punched, spat on and forced to run ridiculous errands for their big brothers. The Netflix original series is directed by Howard University alum Gerard McMurray, a member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
Rounding out the cast, Alfre Woodard, Serayah and Chiké Okonkwo ("Being Mary Jane"/Birth of a Nation) also star in the film. It's executive produced by rapper Common and Caroline Connor.
Take a look at the intense trailer below:
Burning Sands will premiere on Netflix March 10th.
