Sunday night, famed film producer, Will Packer, and his wife, Heather Packer, hosted a private A-list screening of the upcoming Nate Parker film, “The Birth of a Nation,” at their home in Atlanta, GA.
The evening kicked off with a light reception, complete with full bar and passed hors d’oeuvres, and transitioned into the Packer House theater where Will and Heather welcomed guests into their home and shared why they felt it necessary to host this film. They also spoke about the importance of historical presentations like his mini-series reboot of “Roots” and “The Birth of a Nation.” Liquid Soul CEO, Tirrell Whittley, then took the stage and thanked everyone for being at the forefront of support for this amazing film.
