2015 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, Griffith's film tells of two families during and after the American Civil War, recalling an era of divided loyalties, friendship and struggle for control of the Southern states.  Birth of a Nation has been condemned for its stereotyping of African Americans and its portrayal of the Ku Klux Klan as heroes, but Griffith's film is also revered for its grand scale and revolutionary use of film technique.
