The Birth of a Nation
D.W. Griffith's Birth of a Nation
This was an amazing film by D.W. Griffith. I avoided it for so long, because unfortunately someone told me it was racist. It actually shows the disturbing effect by the Ku Klux Klan and the blacks' uprising against this secret-society. To ignore this important piece of history would only be giving power to racism. Griffith is a master and this film is a work of art.
