Please join us for a wine-and-cheese reception, followed by a screening of a compilation of Academy Award Winner Spike Lee's documentaries, and a retrospective discussion to follow. Spike Lee is a notable writer, director, producer, actor, and author who revolutionized both the landscape of independent cinema and the role of black talent in film. Widely regarded as a premiere African-American filmmaker, Lee is a forerunner in the ‘do it yourself’ school of filmmaking.
Born in Atlanta, Georgia, and raised in Brooklyn, Lee founded 40 Acres and a Mule Filmworks, based in the Fort Greene section of Brooklyn, where he has resided since childhood.
