Spike Lee is going back to his roots…BROOKLYN! The ground-breaking director that brought us Do The Right Thing, Malcom X, Mo Betta Blues, School Days, Crooklyn, She’s Gotta Have It, Inside Man, Miracle at St. Ana, Jungle Fever and soooo many more
In this film, a middle-class boy from Atlanta finds his worldview changed as he spends the summer with his deeply religious grandfather in the housing projects of Red Hook, Brooklyn. Starring Jules Brown, Thomas Jefferson and the star of Red Tails, Nate Parker. Look for it in theaters this fall.
Red Hook Summer looks both thought provoking and entertaining. Check out the trailer below as well as Spike Lee’s performance and the BET Awards:
