Synopsis

Product Description
Conceived as a reimagining of director D.W. Griffith's infamously racist 1915 silent film The Birth of a Nation, DJ Spooky's Rebirth of a Nation, recorded with Kronos Quartet, is a controversial and culturally significant project that examines how "...exploitation and political corruption still haunt the world to this day, but in radically different forms." Originally commissioned in 2004 by the Lincoln Center Festival, Spoleto Festival USA, Weiner Festwochen, and the Festival d'Automne a Paris, the project was Miller's first large-scale multimedia performance piece, and has been performed around the world, from the Sydney Festival to the Herod Atticus Amphitheater, more than fifty times.
This package includes a new print of the DVD (the original silent film with newly remixed and synced score), and marks the first time that the project's entire recorded score is available on CD.
