Piazza Grande: Prefestival
Do the Right Thing
The great masterpiece by Spike Lee takes place in world famous Bed-Stuy Brooklyn, during one sizzling summer day, when race and community politics collide in a violent deconstruction of modern urban life.
Spike Lee confirmed himself as the most important Black director alive with this artistic triumph. The polemical urging of the title has lost none of its potency 30 years later. And the sonic assault on the canon by the brilliant musical group Public Enemy remains a structuring motif par excellence.Greg de Cuir Jr
