The black men in ‘Pension’ have finally won their cause, as they are celebrating their liberation in a film which has opened in theaters across the United States.
The film, which premiered in the US on Sunday, has gone viral and has been viewed over four million times on YouTube, according to a review of the film’s trailer by The Hollywood Reporter.
“Passion,” which is directed by Navid Ali, is the story of five men, three black, three white, who are incarcerated for the murder of a black man.
Ali, who also stars in the upcoming ‘The Secret Life of Pets’ film, is not a white actor, and he has also written and directed films with white actors, including ‘Macho Man 3’ and ‘Raging Bull.’
In the film, the men are sent to a state penitentiary to serve out their sentences.
Their lives become a nightmare as they fight for their lives while battling to stay alive and fighting to get out of prison.
The film is a culmination of the fight for black lives in America, and it has taken on an added level of significance given that it was originally directed by a white man.
It has since been viewed more than four million time and has garnered over 3.6 million views on YouTube.
The Oscar-winning actor and his wife, actress Rosario Dawson, were the stars of the hit ‘Pilot’ for Warner Bros. Entertainment and had a recurring role in ‘The Social Network.’
