The Birth of a Nation is an American silent film directed by D. W. Griffith which chronicles the relationship of two families during the Civil War with key historic scenes such as the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. The film was a huge commercial success, but was highly controversial due to the depiction of racism, which inspired D.W. Griffith to produce Intolerance the following year.

Movie Synopsis:

Nat Turner, a former slave in America, leads a liberation movement in 1831 to free African-Americans in Virgina that results in a violent retaliation from whites.
