Hollywood legend Spike Lee to do Q&A at Brixton Ritzy

Spike Lee, director of pioneering movies She’s Gotta Have It and Malcolm X is coming to Brixton to answer questions on his Oscar-nominated movie BlacKKKlansman.
The Ritzy cinema will welcome the auteur on Friday for a special Q&A following a screening of the BAFTA-contender drama.
Lee has most recently been nominated for a Golden Globe for the film, which critics have called one of the most important films of 2018, first released last August.
BLACKKKLANSMAN is based on the true story and biography of Ron Stallworth, played by John David Washington. It’s the early 1970s, and Stallworth is the first black detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. Teaming up with seasoned colleague Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), the young detective goes undercover to take down the extremist hate group from the inside.
The film won the Grand Prix at the very prestigious Cannes Film festival where it had its premiere last summer and is nominated for six Academy Awards including best film, best director and a best supporting actor nomination for Adam Driver.
