Broken Blossoms contains culturally insensitive depictions of people and their culture. These stereotypes were wrong then, and they are wrong now. Removing them would mean denying their existence. Instead, we choose to make them a teachable moment to stimulate dialogue and create a more inclusive future together.

À Limehouse, quartier populaire de l’est londonien, le lien entre Lucy, treize ans, martyrisée par son père, et Cheng Huan, un bouddhiste venu de Chine, défie la violence brutale du père alcoolique d’elle. En affinant ses innovations linguistiques et grâce à la performance de Lillian Gish, Griffith signe l’un de ses films les plus intimes, un mélodrame de style victorien sur la fatalité et le sacrifice.
