Watch: AFI Movie Club Conversation with Spike Lee about DO THE RIGHT THING

AFI Movie Club was created to bring us together as one global community. And now our community is in need of more thoughtful discussions about films that have shaped our culture.

DO THE RIGHT THING is that film. It’s a timeless and timely classic. The film, released in 1989, was nominated for two Academy Awards®, including a Best Original Screenplay nomination for Lee, and AFI ranked it as one of the 100 Greatest Films of All Time. Spike Lee has forever proven himself the voice for change that we need now more than ever.

As you know, through the generous support of our partners at Universal Pictures, DO THE RIGHT THING is available to rent for free on major digital platforms through June 29, 2020. On Thursday, June 25 at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT AFI hosted a live conversation with Spike Lee about his seminal film. Watch here:

Was Brecht any kind of inspiration for Do the Right Thing – politically, dialectically. musically, breaking the artifice of the film?
