Rebirth of a Nation
May 23, 2017 at 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
$19 to $55
First performed in 2004, Rebirth of a Nation is a multimedia creation of DC native Paul D. Miller—a.k.a. DJ Spooky—that recuts and warps D.W. Griffith’s 1915 silent film, The Birth of a Nation, a landmark in cinema that was also (even for its time) shockingly racist. By dicing up the film’s scenes and reassembling them into something new—accompanied by a live string quartet and a turntable—Miller’s “remix” ($19 to $55) is a commentary on that legacy.
