Kaleidoscope Entertainment presents Emperor, an inspirational, uplifting and timely portrait of courage, from the producer of Django Unchained. Released on Digital 1st March and on DVD 5th April.
From the producer of Django Unchained comes Emperor, an inspirational and timely portrait of courage and resilience set during a turbulent time in American history.
This epic story is inspired by the legend of 19th century freedom fighter, Shields “Emperor” Green (Dayo Okeniyi, The Hunger Games, Shades of Blue), a descendant of African kings turned outlaw slave in the pre-Civil War South.
A man fighting to free his family and bring an end to tyranny, Emperor fights his way north, joining forces with abolitionist John Brown for a daring raid on Harper’s Ferry, helping to alter the course of American history in the process.
An action-packed and powerful epic shining a light on one of history’s unsung heroes, Emperor also stars Ben Robson (Animal Kingdom, Vikings), Academy Award® nominee James Cromwell (The Young Pope, The Green Mile), Kat Graham (All Eyez on Me, The Vampire Diaries) and Academy Award® and Golden Globe® nominee Bruce Dern (The Hateful Eight, Nebraska).
