9781844576579: The Birth of a Nation (BFI Film Classics)

Portraying the Ku Klux Klan as heroic underdogs, silent epic The Birth of a Nation (1915) is widely considered to be the most controversial film of all time. At once one of US culture's greatest artistic achievements and one of its most abhorrently racist artefacts, it becomes more shocking with every passing year.

Comprising a decade of archival research and published on the 100th anniversary of the film's release, this richly detailed study considers both the film's afterlife and the artistic, industrial and moral surroundings in which it was created. Drawing on an unbroken century of production and reception history, Paul McEwan recounts the film's origins and development, Griffith's unique editing and cinematography and the construction of racial identity and fear in the film. Assessing its contribution as an art form, while directly grappling with the complexity of the art-or-racism debate, Paul McEwan shows how The Birth of a Nation has had a central role in the development of film and Film Studies worldwide.

About the Author :

Paul McEwan is Associate Professor of Media and Communication and Film Studies and Director of Film Studies at Muhlenburg College, USA. He has written extensively on D.W. Griffith and is the author of a book on the cult punk film Hard Core Logo.

Review :

Paul McEwan's well-written book is a compendium of the film's creation, intentions, meaning, and effects.' - All Classical Portland

'Indisputably a classic, but indoubtedly in need of context and interpretation, The Birth of a Nation is a prime candidate for the BFI Film Classics treatment. While it's a surprise that D.W. Griffith's 1915 landmark film hasn't already been featured in the series, Paul McEwan's monograph proves to be worth the wait.' - Pamela Hutchinson, Sight & Sound, October 2015 issue
