Synopsis: BIRTH OF A NATION (Centenary Edition) (Blu-ray) A Film by D W Griffith2015 marks the centenary of D W Griffith's masterful silent epic, The Birth of a Nation, presented here in a stunning new restoration. A cinematic milestone tells of two families during and after the American Civil War, recalling an era of divided loyalties and struggle for control over the Southern states. Condemned for its stereotyping of African Americans and its portrayal of the Ku Klux Klan as heroes, Griffith's film is also revered for its grand scale and revolutionary use of film technique.
