This short video is a mathematical dissection exposing one of American Cinema's "directorial masters", D.W. Griffith as nothing more than a man absent virtue, imagination, or courage. A juxtaposed ten-second increment descends second-by-second down to a final one-second image from The Battle of Elderbush Gulch inter-cut with the ascension of a one-second image culminating into a final full ten-seconds of Powwow dancers. Contrary to Popular Belief addresses cinema's long history of racism towards, misrepresentations and inaccurate depictions of Native Americans, something D.W. Griffith perpetuated throughout his life, although not solely encompassing Native Americans.
