    Unedited footage for an unreleased black-cast feature film, originally shot in 1913 and recently discovered in MoMA’s Biograph collection, are the subject of this installation. New York producers Klaw & Erlanger mounted the untitled project at virtually the same time that D. W. Griffith began his racist epic The Birth of a Nation, but they abandoned the seven reels of exposed film in postproduction, leaving buried within it unique photographic documentation of its black cast and white crew on the set

    Set in the Reconstruction era, “Birth of a Nation” depicts heroic Ku Klux Klansmen and stereotyped black characters, played by white actors in blackface
