No other silent film director has been so extensively studied as D. W. Griffith. However, only a small group of his more than 500 films has been the subject of a systematic analysis and the vast majority of his other works stills await proper examination. For the first time in film studies, the complete creative output of Griffith - from Professional Jealousy (1907) to The Struggle (1931) - will be explored in this multi-volume collection of contributions from an international team of leading scholars in the field. Created as a companion to the on-going retrospective held by the Pordenone Silent Film Festival, The Griffith Project is an indispensable guide to the work of a crucial figure in the arts of the nineteenth century. With contributions from Eileen Bowser, Tom Gunning, Kristin Thompson, Ben Brewster, Steven Higgins, Richard Koszarski, Scott Simmon, J.B. Kaufman, Russell Merritt, Patrick Loughney, Cooper Graham, Andre Gaudreault, Yuri Tsivian, Richard Allen.
