Publisher's Summary

THE BIRTH OF A NATION remains one of the most controversial films ever made and a landmark achievement in film history that continues to fascinate and enrage audiences. It is the story of two families, one northern and one southern, during and after the Civil War. Griffith’s masterful direction combines brilliant battle scenes and tender romance with a vicious portrayal of African-Americans.

Our Review

From a moral standpoint, I found it disgusting. From a historical standpoint, it was a fascinating look into the opinions of white nationalist a century ago, and to see how far we’ve come in that 100 years. As well as to see that many of the arguments of the day defending this film are similar to many other arguments of today defending white nationalism and acts of racism.
