Title: The Exemplary Practices of David Griffith, Part 1: Establishing Events Historically
Author: Cameron, Evan Wm.
Abstract: With the release of THE BIRTH OF A NATION in 1915, David Griffith established by common consent and emulation of his peers the prototype of international feature filmmaking – an exemplar of the possibilities of practice within a natural art. A year later he completed INTOLERANCE, the film that was to entice a young Russian, Vsevolod Pudovkin, to explain what was going on and thus complete the paradigm. Within this essay I explain what Griffith did, how he came to do and why the doing of it was so influential.
