Here's a behind-the-scenes featurette for Fox Searchlight's Black Nativity, a musical drama directed by Kasi Lemmons, which is set for a November 27, 2013 release.

The story centers on a young black teen from Baltimore, who is sent to Harlem by his mother to spend the Christmas holiday with his estranged grandparents. The boy then learns the real meaning of faith and family when his grandfather delivers a Christmas Eve sermon. The film includes a stylized, dream-sequence retelling of the classic Nativity story.

The film stars Jacob Latimore, Forest WhitakerAngela Bassett, and Jennifer Hudson, in a work that's based on Langston Hughes' Broadway gospel musical.

Mary J. BligeTyrese GibsonLuke James, and Nas round out the cast. 

Terence Blanchard is the film score's composer, while Raphael Saadiq wrote music for it.

It opens November 27, 2013, in the middle of a somewhat crowded fall for black films.
