Griffith’s film is a veneration of the KKK, painting the Klan as saviors of a white race in danger as American culture and politics begin to shift after the American Civil War. It highlights a fundamental white supremacist delusion that continues to plague this country: that white people are inherently superior, and that they are politically and culturally under attack. Second Seed grapples with this white delusion.
Second Seed is a dance horror film responding to D.W. Griffith’s The Birth of a Nation
