Time flies, doesn’t it? About two years ago, we got a chance to film the very talented director, Spike Lee, when he was being interviewed for the BBC. It centered around the 25th anniversary of one of his most critically acclaimed films, DO THE RIGHT THING.
Released in 1989, the film was a comedy-drama that tackled the simmering racial tension in a Brooklyn neighborhood, on one of the hottest days of summer. It’s been hailed as both a commercial and critical success and in 2008 was deemed as one of the 500 greatest movies of all time by Empire Magazine.
If you’re a self-confessed movie geek, it’s definitely a film worth seeing.
For now, check out the interview below. Spike Lee talks about his various influences and how he managed to make the film.
