Ava DuVernay’s ARRAY Releasing has acquired the award-winning film BURNING CANE by 19-year-old director Phillip Youmans and starring award-winner Wendell Pierce.

BURNING CANE tells the story of a deeply religious woman’s (Karen Kaia Livers) struggle to reconcile her convictions of faith with the love she has for her alcoholic son (Dominique McClellan) and a troubled preacher (Wendell Pierce). Set in rural Louisiana, the film explores the relationships within a southern black protestant community, examining the roots of toxic masculinity, how manhood is defined and the dichotomous role of religion and faith.
