Perhaps no other film speaks more directly to our current cultural moment than Spike Lee's seminal work, released more than 30 years ago. Exploring the lives and communities that comprise the diverse, vibrant neighborhood of Bed-Stuy, Lee's picture clamours with color and creative vision. When Buggin' Out (Giancarlo Esposito) demands Sal of Sal's Famous Pizzeria (Danny Aiello) begin putting pictures of Black people on his "Wall of Fame," the entire community is inexorably drawn into an outburst of rage on the hottest night of the year. Register to watch the film and help us discuss what Lee's 1980's New York might say about our own neighborhoods and city. We hope to see you there ...and that's the truth, Ruth! This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
