Part of BAMcinématek

Wesley Snipes burst onto the scene in the 1980s and quickly became one of America’s most charismatic, versatile, and eminently quotable screen actors. Equally convincing as a powerful dramatic force, comedy whirlwind, or action dynamo, Snipes has amassed a remarkable body of work, from much-loved blockbusters to lesser-known indie gems. In celebration of the 25th Anniversary of White Men Can’t Jump, BAMcinématek highlights a selection of his greatest leading performances.

Curated by Ashley Clark.
