Do the Right Thing
This film is the first cinema screening programmed by Keeping It Reel, a local Young Film Programmers group based at Trinity Theatre. Through the films we show, we hope to encourage young people to expand their film interests, showcasing films from varying countries, genres, and time periods.
Set on one block of Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy Do or Die neighbourhood, at the height of Summer, this 1989 masterpiece by Spike Lee confirmed him as a writer and filmmaker of peerless vision and passionate social engagement. Over the course of a single day, the easygoing interactions of a cast of unforgettable characters—Da Mayor, Mother Sister, Mister Señor Love Daddy, Tina, Sweet Dick Willie, Buggin Out, Radio Raheem, Sal, Pino, Vito, and Lee’s Mookie among them — give way to heated confrontations as tensions rise along racial fault lines, ultimately exploding into violence.
Punctuated by the anthemic refrain of Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power”, Do the Right Thing is a landmark in American cinema, as politically and emotionally charged and as relevant now as when it first hit the big screen.
You can buy a ticket just for the film, or if you want to immerse yourself in the Brooklyn vibe, order a Meal Ticket and enjoy a big New York slice of pepperoni pizza or with a Meal Ticket (vegetarian), a classic margherita slice. Why not do the right thing and join us before the film and get in a New York state of mind?
