Heat and tension are in the air in Spike Lee’s career-making Do the Right Thing.

Starring the man himself, as well as an incredible ensemble cast (John Turturro, Ossie Davis, Samuel L. Jackson, Martin Lawrence, Bill Nunn and introducing the world to Rosie Perez!) the film was the recipient of two Oscars.

Set on a single day in the life of a Brooklyn street, we watch as the inhabitants argue, flirt, joke and debate. Tensions escalate in the hot sun as an act of thoughtless violence unleashes terrible consequences, breaking the generational and racial accord. Told with humour, colour, music and exuberance, this honest and searching film is as vibrant, pertinent and searching as it was when it was made.
