Manhattan + Do the Right Thing

Manhattan + Do the Right Thing
Available to Members
Double Feature | Year 7 (2015)

An adventure through New York through two different perspectives – this time, the adventure continues with the poster-child of the Woody Allen meets Spike Lee journey. Attempting to separate the art from the artists. A love letter to Manhattan. Double Feature has a very frank discussion about the public perception of two controversial film makers, and how their personal lives may be viewed in connection with the previous films. Is Spike Lee a racist, or is it just his Twitter feed? The difference between a racially charged Do the Right Thing and a potentially racist film maker. Beats released a Do the Right Thing documentary and no one noticed.
