During 24 sweltering hours in Brooklyn, tensions mount between various individuals in the multiracial community, particularly those frequenting or working – like Mookie (Lee) – at the pizzeria owned by Sal (Aiello). Then an argument – about loud music! – escalates until all hell breaks loose. Lee’s pacy, punchy, provocative fable combines comedy, suspense and serious social comment to dazzling effect; and the well-chosen cast is uniformly excellent.

The screening on Wednesday 28 September will be introduced by freelance writer and producer Kaleem Aftab.
