Indiewire is pleased to present the official U.S. trailer for Terry Green’s “No God, No Master.” Starring Oscar-nominee David Strathairn (“Good Night, and Good Luck”), the film is opening this month courtesy of Monterey Media.
When a series of package bombs show up on the doorsteps of prominent politicians and businessmen in the summer of 1919, U.S. Bureau of Investigation Agent William Flynn (Strathairn) is assigned the task of finding those responsible. He becomes immersed in an investigation that uncovers an anarchist plot to destroy democracy. Based on true events of the 20s the film sets the stage for a timely drama with resoundingly similar parallels to the contemporary war on terrorism and the role government plays to defeat it.
There are interesting parallels between the plot and thematic material of the film, and the post-terrorism world we live in today. The uproar from the package bombs displayed in the film led to the profiling of immigrants whose political views may have strayed from what was considered the status quo in America at the time. This act of profiling shares similarities with the profiling of American Muslims in the years after 9/11. “No God, No Master” will be released on March 28th, 2014.
Watch the trailer below. The film opens March 28.
