No other silent film director has been as extensively studied as D.
W. Griffith. However, only a small group of his more than five hundred films has been the subject of a systematic analysis, and the vast majority of his other works still await proper examination.
For the first time in film studies, the complete creative output of Griffith - from "Professional Jealousy "(1907) to "The" "Struggle "(1931) - will be explored in this multivolume collection of contributions from an international team of leading scholars in the field.
Created as a companion to the ongoing retrospective held by the Pordenone Silent Film Festival, the Griffith Project is an indispensable guide to the work of a crucial figure in the arts of the nineteenth century.
The latest volume assesses Griffith's work in 1914-15.
It includes an extensive, multi-authored evaluation of "The Birth of" "a Nation."
