Part of BAM Film series Indie 80s
Directed by Spike Lee | 1986

With Tracy Camilla Johns, Tommy Redmond Hicks, John Canada Terrell

"One of the lynchpins of the burgeoning American indie movement of the 1980s."
—Slant Magazine

Lee’s fearless feature debut (shot largely in Fort Greene) took the world by storm by appropriating the indie sex comedy, à la Woody Allen, to address black sexuality. She’s Gotta Have It is a watershed independent film of the 1980s, radical for its concern with a demographic hitherto unrepresented on screen: the cosmopolitan black female.
