Do the Right Thing
+ intro by Jan Asante, Founder of Culture Kinetica: THINK CINEMATIC
Spike Lee’s tale of racial tension in Brooklyn is astute, funny and moving.
Dir Spike Lee
With Danny Aiello, Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee
What starts as a spat in an Italian restaurant escalates to a tragic event in the neighbourhood, in this astute, funny and moving film featuring great performances across the board. Another honorary Academy Award-winner, Spike Lee shamefully wasn’t even nominated for Best Picture or Director for this tale of racial tension in Brooklyn. Lee’s screenplay did receive a nomination, but lost out to Dead Poets Society.
