Image for CineMasters: Spike Lee

Spike Lee has been a vital and disruptive force in American independent cinema since he made his provocative debut She’s Gotta Have It in 1986. In over 30 years of filmmaking he has continually refused to compromise his vision, using cinema as a vehicle to call out racism, social injustice and political inequality. Currently riding high on the Oscar-winning success of his explosively entertaining BlacKkKlansman, Lee is an essential thorn in the side of the US establishment. We like Spike.
