DJ Spooky's Rebirth of a Nation

2007 Rated NR 1hr 40m

Experimental hip-hop musician DJ Spooky remixes D.W. Griffith's controversial 1915 silent movie Birth of a Nation in this innovative film project, deconstructing its distasteful caricatures of slaves and carpetbaggers in the post-Civil War South. Spooky's manipulation of the images, as well as his addition of a new soundtrack, emphasizes the racist elements of the film while creating fresh stories from the fragments of the original.
