Event Details

Academy Award winner Spike Lee is a director, writer, actor, producer, author, and New York University-tenured professor whose body of work spans the last three decades. Recent projects include Da 5 Bloods (2020) and BlacKkKlansman (2018), for which Lee won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay. Widely regarded as a premiere African American filmmaker, Lee is a forerunner in the “do-it-yourself” school of filmmaking and has directed and produced over 30 films since his first feature film, the independently produced She’s Gotta Have It (1986), which also premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 1986 and received the esteemed Prix de la Jeunesse Award. He continues to produce cinematic works of art that display his skill at creating outspoken and proactive socio-political critiques that challenge cultural assumptions about race, class, and gender identity.
