Details

It’s the hottest day of the year on a street in Brooklyn and racial tensions are high enough to boil over into violence. Punctuated by the anthemic refrain of Public Enemy’s ‘Fight the Power’, Spike Lee’s masterpiece is a landmark in American cinema, as relevant now as when it first hit the big screen.

This screening will be introduced by film programmer, critic and curator Liz Chege.

With thanks to Park Circus.
