Join our friends at FGPC on the Myrtle Lawn for a free, 30th Anniversary screening of “Do the Right Thing” under the stars!
Do the Right Thing
Spike Lee | US | 120
With Danny Aiello, Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee, Giancarlo Esposito, Spike Lee, Bill Nunn, John Turturro. One of the most aesthetically accomplished and intentionally incendiary of all American films, Spike Lee’s full-throttle portrait of a particularly eventful, hot summer day in the life of a Bed-Stuy neighborhood is a remarkable dramatization of race relations in America. The phenomenal cast (including Aiello as pizza shop owner Sal, Lee as delivery boy Mookie, and Davis as an apartment-stoop prophet), the endlessly inventive visuals, and the charged political discussion made this an epochal cultural moment that retains its extraordinary power to this day.
There are no RSVPs being taken for this screening; come one, come all! Film starts at sundown. Myrtle Movies is generously supported by The Brooklyn Hospital Center, the Lily Auchincloss Foundation, NYC Council Majority Leader Laurie Cumbo, and the Department of Cultural Affairs.
