Nate Parker Opening Film School at Wiley College

Nate Parker has struck again. This fall Wiley College will welcome students to The Nate Parker School of Film and Drama.

Wiley College was the setting for the film “The Great Debaters” which Parker costarred in. He now is opening a film school at the East Texas University.

Parker hopes to cover all aspects of film making, from sound, lighting, and cinematography, to just studying film specifically with the cultural component and the history of film.

“You control the moving picture, you control the masses,” Parker said. “So really getting them rallied around the idea of re-claiming the narrative of America, specifically through the eyes of people of color.”

Before the official enrollment in the fall there will be nine day summer institute. The application process will be released soon.
