THE BIRTH OF A NATION, D. W. Griffith’s great and controversial 3-hour silent epic, will be released as part of Eureka Entertainment’s MASTERS OF CINEMA Series on Blu-ray and DVD on 22 July 2013


Eureka Entertainment have announced that they will be releasing a new two-disc 1080p presentation (on the Blu-ray) of D. W. Griffith‘s great and controversial 3-hour silent epic, THE BIRTH OF A NATION – often hailed as the first feature-length masterpiece of the cinema.

It is the film that invented such commonplace staples of cinema/TV technique: panoramic shots, night photography, panning shots, its own musical score, and was the breakthrough film of one of the greatest actress of the silent era – Lillian Gish.

Special features will include short vintage introductions to the film by Griffith and Walter Huston; newly rediscovered intermission and title sequences; seven Civil War shorts by Griffith totalling over 100 minutes in length; and a lengthy booklet with writing about the film, rare archival imagery; and more.
