Spike Lee Director by Dennis Abrams


Spike Lee Director by Dennis Abrams

In his own words, Spike Lee is the man who singlehandedly 'broke the color barrier' in Hollywood in the mid-1980s. In a film career spanning more than 20 years, Lee has established himself as one of the United States' premier filmmakers, a director whose films explore the many aspects of the African-American experience. Never one to shy away from controversy - he has been accused of racism, anti-semitism, and sexism - Lee uses film to raise tough questions and to provoke discussion. How was he able to break down the doors of Hollywood for himself and for other African-American directors, actors, and technicians? How has he continued to grow and develop as a filmmaker? Spike Lee: Director presents a nuanced portrait of an artist who has become a symbol of contemporary American culture.
