Rebirth of a Nation

The Atlanta College of Art will present DJ Spooky’s Rebirth of A Nation on Friday, April 22. DJ Spooky, a world-renowned multimedia/performance artist ñ will present his remix of images from the 1915 film Birth of A Nation to present a strikingly original and provocative work that addresses issues of race and the use of technology and media in our society.

Projected onto three screens, DJ Spooky segues segments of D.W. Griffith’s racist 1915 silent film with graphics and visual effects accompanied by a soundtrack blending blues, jungle, dub, space rock and ambient hip hop samples mixed with DJ Spooky’s own score The Rebirth Suite.

$10-15. 8 p.m. Atlanta Symphony Hall, 1280 Peachtree St. 404-733-5000.
