Doing the Right Thing by Jim Pines
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Spike Lee's oeuvre is not restricted to narrative films, however. His documentary "4 Little Girls" was nominated for the Best Feature Documentary Academy Award in 1997; while "When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts", documented the catastrophic Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans on 29th August 2005, in a style that is both moving and political in an activist sense. "Miracle at St. Anna" (2008), set out explicitly to highlight the contribution made by African-American soldiers during the Second World War, and by doing so redress the absence of African-Americans in the popular myths and images of that historic moment.
