Summary, etc.: The Civil War divided friends and destroyed families, but that's nothing compared to the anarchy in the black-ruled South after the war. This lavish epic was the very first feature length silent film. Its controversy, masterful battle scenes and moving family drama are still the cornerstones to the art of filmmaking.
