Dallas VideoFest 29: Rebirth of a Nation
More than 100 years after the release of D. W. Griffith's epic The Birth of a Nation (1915), performance artist and musician Paul D. Miller, aka DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid, has applied a "DJ mix" to one of the most revered and yet also reviled films ever made. Miller's reading of the overt racism depicted in a Reconstruction-era South hurtles Griffith's images into the 21st Century, a socio-political landscape that has evolved beyond all expectations.
