Synopsis

First released in 1915, D.W. Griffith’s BIRTH OF A NATION ignited worldwide controversy with its graphic depictions of racism and white supremacy in the post-Civil War south. Nearly 100 years later, Paul D. Miller – also known as conceptual artist/musician/writer DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid – creates a daring ‘remix’ of Griffith’s epic to expose the film’s true meaning and relate it the socio-political conflicts of America today. Originally commissioned as a live multimedia performance, REBIRTH OF A NATION – now featuring an original score by Miller performed by Kronos Quartet – is ‘a DJ mix applied to cinema’ that challenges our legacy of revisionist history as it deconstructs one of the most influential and inflammatory movies of all time.
