Birth of A Nation

 

Director_ James BENNING
 
USA 2018 3min DCP color shorts Documentary
Review

This three-channel video installation by James Benning shows three scenes from D.W. Griffith’s The Birth of a Nation (1915). The two-minute-long screen arrangement of imperceptibly moving images alludes to the beginning of racism. The three screens each show soldiers fallen in the American Civil War, black slaves picking cotton in the field, and imposing Ku Klux Klan (KKK). Birth of A Nation heightens our sense of movement and evokes a new experience in various aspects ─ environment, ecology, politics and perception. [JANG Byungwon]
