“You get to see these guys go through rituals that bond them as men, especially men in a society that has excluded them all,” says Alfre Woodard at the Sundance Film Festival of the Gerald McMurray directed Burning Sands. “It’s scary, it’s horrific, it’s funny, it’s wild, it’s adventurous – all of that is there,” the Emmy winning and Oscar nomination actor added of the tale of fraternity pledging, brotherhood and morality that debuts today at the Eccles Theater.

“It’s a universal story about how men reach an identity in a world where women are finally being included and recognized,” Woodard also noted of the film when visiting the Deadline Studio at Sundance 2017 presented by Applegate – watch the full interview above.

After its four screenings at Sundance, Burning Sands premiere on Netflix on March 10.
