Birth of a Nation - Centenary Edition

2015 marks the centenary of the release of the controversial, yet extremely significant American silent epic, The Birth of a Nation, by D.W. Griffith. Griffith is often considered to be one of the most important figures in the history of cinema having been credited with creating and perfecting cinematic devices such as the flash-back, the iris shot, the mask and cross-cutting. The Birth of a Nation covers a period of several years and is centered on the relationship of two families during the Civil War and Reconstruction-US era. Dividing friends and destroying families, The Civil War is minor in its disruption compared to the anarchy which follows in the black-ruled South post-war. The film was released to great commercial success, being one of the highest grossing films of the Silent era, but was widely-debated and often condemned due to its portrayal of the Ku Klux Klan as a heroic force. The film is attributed to launching the career of Lillian Gish, who worked closely with Griffith for many years, and who was also known as ‘The First Lady of American Cinema’. Extras: Two short films by D W Griffith; The Rose of Kentucky (1911) and The Coward (1911) The Drummer of the 8th (1913) – short film starring future Oscar winning Frank Borzage (A Farewell to Arms) Stolen Glory (1912) – a comedy starring Ford Sterling filmed against the backdrop of a parade of Union Civil War veterans 1930 re-release title sequence and short archival introduction by D W Griffith Photoplay orchestral recording sessions Out-takes and original camera tests D W Griffith on Lux Radio Theatre BFI Southbank roundtable discussion (2015) A Personal Appreciation of Birth of a Nation by film scholar Melvyn Stokes Fully illustrated booklet with news essays and full credits Cast and Crew: Directed by D W Griffith (Intolerance, Orphans of the Storm) Cast: Lillian Gish (Duel in the Sun, The Comedians)

GEBURT EINER NATION ist eines der umstrittensten Meisterwerke der Filmgeschichte. Mit einem gigantischen 110.000 Dollar-Budget und maximalem Werbeaufwand entstand 1915 D.W. Griffiths Monumentalepos über das Schicksal zweier eng befreundeter Familien aus den Nord- und Südstaaten, die in den Wirren des amerikanischen Sezessionskrieges 1861 - 1865 nicht zu Feinden werden wollen. Dass Griffith allerdings seinen wagemutig-sympathischen Helden, den Südstaatler Ben Cameron, ausgerechnet zum Begründer des Ku-Klux-Klan macht, trug ihm nicht zu Unrecht den Vorwurf des Rassismus und der Geschichtsfälschung ein. Unbestritten hingegen bleiben bis heute die zahlreichen Neuerungen, die THE BIRTH OF A NATION in das ästhetische Repertoire des noch jungen Mediums Film einführte. Mit Parallelmontagen, Rückblenden, Ausblenden, Nachtaufnahmen, Kamerafahrten, Panoramaschwenks, rasanten Rhythmisierungen und dramaturgisch meisterhaft choreographierten Massenszenen setzte der Film Maßstäbe...

Number-one New York Times best sellerPulitzer Prize-winning author Jon Meacham helps us understand the present moment in American politics and life by looking back at critical times in our history when hope overcame division and fear.Named one of the best books of the year by NPR, the Christian Science Monitor, and Southern Living.Our current climate of partisan fury is not new, and in The Soul of America Meacham shows us how what Abraham Lincoln called the "better angels of our nature" have repeatedly won the day. Painting surprising portraits of Lincoln and other presidents, including Ulysses S. Grant, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, and Lyndon B. Johnson, and illuminating the courage of such influential citizen activists as Martin Luther King Jr., early suffragettes Alice Paul and Carrie Chapman Catt, civil rights pioneers Rosa Parks and John Lewis, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, and Army-McCarthy hearings lawyer Joseph N. Welch, Meacham brings vividly to life turning points in American history. He writes about the Civil War, Reconstruction, and the birth of the Lost Cause; the backlash against immigrants in the First World War and the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan in the 1920s; the fight for women's rights; the demagoguery of Huey Long and Father Coughlin and the isolationist work of America First in the years before World War II; the anti-Communist witch hunts led by Senator Joseph McCarthy; and Lyndon Johnson’s crusade against Jim Crow. Each of these dramatic hours in our national life have been shaped by the contest to lead the country to look forward rather than back, to assert hope over fear - a struggle that continues even now.While the American story has not always - or even often - been heroic, we have been sustained by a belief in progress even in the gloomiest of times.

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2005 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, Humboldt-University of Berlin, 39 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The Ku Klux Klan and its racist doctrine have a long history. In his work "Backfire. How the Ku Klux Klan Helped the Civil Rights Movement", David Chalmers calls the Klan as "America's only enduring political terrorist movement". The following paper will mainly focus on the presentation of the Klan in Thomas Dixon's Southern Reconstruction novel "The Clansman" and D. W. Griffith's movie "The Birth of a Nation", as well as in contemporary American literature and films. In that context, the Klan's prejudices against African Americans will be discussed - in connection with Karen Hesse's children book one also has to take prejudices against Jews into account.The analysis of Ku Klux Klan literature and films will cover three important Klan-eras beginning in 1887 until the 1960s. Different types of texts and films will be set in context with different cultural aspects of that time.All together, one cannot directly speak of an influence of Dixon's work on later Klan literature and films. But the presence of some similar motives in all novels and films which will be taken into account, shows an important aspect that will be the main point of this paper: Regardless of a pro-Klan or a political neutral work of fiction, one can recognise either a conscious or an unconscious hero worship of the Klan, or, at least a representation of the Klan's immense political and social power. One has to assume that different books and films indeed help to create a Klan myth. Throughout the paper, different motives will be compared to strengthen this thesis.
