Rebirth of a Nation

First released in 1915, D.W. Griffith's BIRTH OF A NATION ignited worldwide controversy with its graphic depiction of racism and white supremacy in the post-Civil War south. Nearly 100 years later, conceptual artist/ musician/writer DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid creates a daring remix of Griffith's epic to expose the film's true meaning and relate it to the socio-political conflicts of America today.
REBIRTH OF A NATION is not available for purchase.
