Do The Right Thing

The great masterpiece by Spike Lee (BlacKkKlansman) takes place in Brooklyn during one sizzling summer day, when race and community politics collide.

Time & Tickets

On the hottest day of the summer, pizza-delivery guy Mookie makes his rounds while navigating the racially charged tensions that inform every daily interaction in the neighbourhood. When local firebrand Buggin’ Out starts an argument with Mookie’s Italian employer Sal, the community’s delicate balance threatens to tip over into chaos.

Released at the end of a decade that had seen ever-deepening divisions between races and cultures, writer-director-star Lee’s angry and artful cinematic rallying cry is as potent, relevant, and important now as it was in 1989. It also bequeathed the world perhaps the greatest rap song in history, Public Enemy’s FIGHT THE POWER, commissioned by Lee specifically for the film. (source: www.tiff.net)
