J.Cole’s record company, Dreamville, dropped the trailer for their new documentary, Out Of Omaha, which explores two young men coming of age in racially divided Omaha, Nebraska. Out Of Omaha will debut on STARZ network on Sept. 9 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Out of Omaha is an intimate portrait of twin brothers, Darcell and Darrell Trotter, two young Black men coming of age in the racially and economically-divided Midwestern city of Omaha, Nebraska. Director Clay Tweel (Gleason, Finders Keepers, The Innocent Man) met the Trotters when they were 17 and filmed them over a period of eight years. By intimately portraying the twins’ hopes, struggles, love, and the help they give and get along the way, the film examines how much it takes to overcome disadvantages rooted in historic injustice.
Out of Omaha is executive produced by multiple platinum hip-hop recording artist J. Cole, the first artist in history to debut three singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The film made its world premiere in New York City at the esteemed DocNYC documentary film festival in November 2018 and won the festival’s coveted Audience Award.
