Directed by Spike Lee | 1998

With Denzel Washington, Ray Allen, Milla Jovovich, Rosario Dawson

BAMcinématek is thrilled to present a special 20th anniversary screening of Spike Lee’s modern American classic. In prison for killing his wife, Jake (Washington) is offered a deal from the state: convince his high school basketball star son Jesus (NBA legend Allen) to play for the governor’s favorite college team and Jake will be on the fast track to freedom. But first he’s got a long way to go in repairing his damaged relationship with Jesus. Lee pulls out all the stylistic stops in this electric drama that crackles with visceral hoops sequences, a vibrant Coney Island setting, and an eclectic soundtrack spanning from Public Enemy to Aaron Copland.

Director Spike Lee will introduce both screenings
