Book cinema tickets for Intolerance: Love's Struggle Throughout the Ages


Mankind's persistent, repeated intolerance throughout history is explored in this legendary, groundbreaking film from the American pioneer, D.W. Griffith. Following widespread criticism of the stereotyping and KKK glorification in his previous film The Birth of a Nation, it would be easy to see Intolerance as an apology of sorts - it wasn't. What it is, however, is an astonishing, lavish epic (featuring over 3,000 extras) set across four time periods - ancient Babylon, Biblical Judea, Renaissance France and 1914 America. In all of these separate, parallel stories, Griffith unravels the conflict and tragedies that ensue when humans refuse to live and let live. Still resonant today, still absolutely astonishing to watch.
