Directed by Spike Lee | 1989

With Spike Lee, Rosie Perez, Danny Aiello, Ossie Davis

In Spike Lee’s landmark Brooklyn classic, the streets of Bed-Stuy boil as racial tensions run high on the hottest day of the year. Loaded with an amazing supporting cast (including Samuel L. Jackson, John Turturro, and Ruby Dee) and music by Public Enemy, Do the Right Thing swings effortlessly from satire to social commentary—and 25 years after its controversial release, it remains an important cultural touchstone for a very different Brooklyn.

In this new monthly series, a prominent artistic or cultural figure talks about the film that inspired their passion for cinema, followed by a screening of the film.

Inspired by the Screen Epiphanies series at London's BFI Southbank

Ezra Edelman will discuss how Do the Right Thing inspired his love of cinema, prior to a screening of the film.
