Birth of a Nation (1915)

by popegrutch

This year is the 100th anniversary of the highly problematic, yet historically significant, movie “The Birth of a Nation” by D.W. Griffith. I’ve been writing an essay a month to discuss it, because it needs more than a simple “review” in the style I typically use to analyze it and its place in film history.

The result of this is that there are now several “Birth of a Nation” posts on this blog, which is getting confusing. I’m creating this “Index” post as the go-to place for access to all of them. Check back for updates.
