Theme: Discussion

Live BackStory Show: THE BIRTH OF A NATION at 100
5:00 p.m. - Warner Bros. Theater

This year marks the 100th anniversary of D.W. Griffith's controversial and monumental work, THE BIRTH OF A NATION. As perhaps the best example of the power of history film to affect public understanding of the past, the Forum will examine the film and what it means a century later as well as what lessons we can draw for the creation of history film today. The discussion will be hosted by Backstory with the American History Guys, a weekly, national public radio program and podcast produced by the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, in discussion with artists, scholars, and the live audience.
