I scored this 11 minute offering a 4 out of 10 because the 34 year old D.W. Griffith does not look favourably upon the disadvantaged. Any engagement that he has with them in this film is merely to advance his own interests and is purely cosmetic. He does not see them as useful citizens, and therefore relegates them into the shadows without giving them screen time to improve themselves and become a higher state of being. He doesn't enhance the audience's experience of his films. He adds nothing to the storytelling of this particular project, and the perspective from which he views the world is dull and misshapen. The camera needs to pay a lot more attention to detail.
