My Father Was A Fugitive Aramaean
30 December 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

In the middle of the American Civil War, in a peaceful valley, a foraging Union soldier meets a Confederate Picket and shoots him. What will the Confederate soldier's mother do when she discovers the refugee she has sheltered may have killed her child?

Griffith, reviled for the racism of BIRTH OF A NATION, sometimes by those familiar with the work and sometimes by those who have no idea what is in that movie, saw the Civil War as a tragedy for all Americans, full of complex problems for which there were no solutions. THE FUGITIVE, although not one of his best works, has been made available on DVD by Kino and is well worth your viewing time.
