Birth of a nation


Recommended Posts

I would really like to see this movie. Although I know it is not a true protrayal of the truth, I would like to see it. I know this was played recently, but I did not get to see it. Any idea if an encore is scheduled. We can learn alot thru these films even when they are not true. It shows the ignorance of the times, but DW Griffith was a fine film maker.

Sorry, it's not coming up again (at least through August.) It's a shame you didn't get to see the version TCM shows, the Photoplay Productions edition, it's the best restoration of the film - a fine print, excellent tinting, and a great orchestral rendition of the original score. This version unfortunately is not available on video.


TCM has aired Birth of a Nation twice within the last year but prior to the November showing it hadn't aired for over half a decade. There's no telling when it might show up again.
