A Historical Significance to the creation of films
D.W. Griffith was obviously a brilliant man. This was the first movie ever to have been filmed in more than one place. Movies before this had a camera set up in one location and that movie was based around that one scene. Regardless of the content, A Birth of a Nation should be looked upon as a historical significance rather than a "racist movie".
