Presented by Video Association of Dallas, Ignite Arts Dallas/SMU Meadows School of the Arts and Make Art with Purpose (MAP).

After more than 100 years after the release of D. W. Griffith’s epic THE BIRTH OF A NATION (1915), performance artist and musician Paul D. Miller, aka DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid, has applied a “DJ mix” to one of the most revered and reviled films ever made. Miller’s reading of the overt racism depicted in a Reconstruction-era South hurtles Griffith’s images into the 21st Century, a sociopolitical landscape that has evolved beyond all expectations.
