Colman Domingo Goes to Washington in Teaser Trailer for ‘Rustin’ Film

Rustin Trailer

“A demonstration made up of angelic troublemakers, such as yourselves!” Netflix has revealed the first teaser trailer for the film Rustin, which is premiering at the Toronto Film Festival kicking off next week. It’s also likely to have its first premiere at the Telluride Film Festival later this week. The talented Colman Domingo stars in a powerful lead role as Bayard Rustin, the gay civil rights activist who organized the famous 1963 March on Washington. It’s co-written by Dustin Lance Black, who also wrote the superb Milk, also about a gay politician, which won him the Oscar in 2009. Rustin was one of the greatest activists and organizers the world has ever known, but the world has also forgotten about him. Now is time to change that. Produced by Oscar-winner Bruce Cohen, Higher Ground’s Tonia Davis, and George C. Wolfe, the film features a huge cast: Chris Rock, Glynn Turman, Aml Ameen, Gus Halper, CCH Pounder, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Johnny Ramey, Michael Potts, with Jeffrey Wright and Audra McDonald. This looks like it will be damn good! Joining the ranks of modern classics about Civil Rights in America like Selma and One Night in Miami. And Colman’s performance looks like one for the ages! I’ll be watching this. // Continue Reading ›
