Incredible performances in this contemporary response to D.W. Griffith’s 1915 silent film The Birth of a Nation by New York City-based directors and choreographers Amadi ‘Baye’ Washington and Sam ‘Asa’ Pratt (aka Baye & Asa). Griffith’s film is a veneration of the KKK, painting the Klan as saviours of a white race in danger as American culture and politics begin to shift after the Civil War. It highlights a fundamental White supremacist delusion that continues to plague this country: that White people are inherently superior, and that they are politically and culturally under attack. “Second Seed” grapples with this White delusion.
