The Great War - A Hundred Years On: Hearts of the World (1918) film screening

Join us for a continuation of events commemorating the anniversary of American engagement in World War I. Hearts of the World (1918) sets out to tell the story of World War I with the greatest realism possible through the melding of warfare and melodrama, a narrative strategy D.W. Griffith had perfected in his extraordinary and controversial film work prior to this film. Yet Griffith’s unprecedented access to the battlefield did not ensure the film’s success, and considering the reasons for this may help us understand something of the nature of what was a new and terrifying form of war -- and the inability of contemporaries, from politicians to soldiers, to grasp its true nature.

Presenter: Isabelle Freda, Assistant Professor of Radio, Television, Film, The Lawrence Herbert School of Communication, Hofstra University
