Editing

by Kate Fortmueller

D.W. Griffith is known for his innovations in film editing. This sequence demonstrates an early example of cross-cutting (between different places that may or may not be temporally related). This cross-cutting creates a contrast between different class realities - a wealthy banquet versus customers buying bread worried about the rising cost of bread.
