Re:Birth : A video

Sharing is caring!

REBIRTH is a short video art piece. It juxtaposes images from DW Griffith’s Birth of a Nation with images of President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. In it, they are entering the White House for the first time after the presidential inauguration in January of 2008.
It also shows President George W. Bush and his wife Laura Bush leaving the  White House for the last time.
The history of the United States of America is a complex one that cannot be divorced from class and race. The image of GW Bush a white male of privilege leaving the White House and his leadership of the US to a Black man and his wife a descendant of slaves is poignant. This video explores that in a somber way.
