SYNOPSlS One of the most artisticaIly significant and controversiaI motion pictures ever made, D. W. Griffith ' s siIent epic The Birth of a Nation was a massive commercial success at the time of its reIease, owing to its dynamic storyteIIing and its breakthrough deveIopments in cinema language that have become common traits of practicaIly every fiIm that has since followed. However, the picture ' s legacy is one that continues to elicit outrage over its vulgar depictions of African - Americans and its deceptive historiography of the United States in the second half of the nineteenth century.

The Birth of a Nation begins depicting the amiabIe relationship between two families, Northern and Southern, and the way in which the impending Civil War intensifies the confIict of their worldviews. FoIlowing the end of the war and the assassination of President LincoIn, a IawIess chaos courses throughout the Reconstruction South, and the Ku Klux Klan is formed to take on a rising black miIitia and impose a vengefuI vigiIante justice across their land and " birthright ".

It's a fiIm that ' s deepIy divisive even to the senses of a single viewer: images of painterIy beauty in composition and tonaI quaIity often exhibit a contemptuous, infIammatory coarseness with regard to subject matter; just as frequently, Iong tracts evince an innocent, terrificaIIy Iyrical grandeur. Griffith would attempt to make amends for the moral schism of this schizophrenic epic in his next fiIm, Intolerance , but The Birth of a Nation cannot - and should not - remain unseen, or undiscussed: it is a great, and terribIe, masterpiece. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to release Griffith ' s three - hour epic, including a series of the director's CiviI War shorts on this speciaI 2 - disc DVD edition.
