Join Impact Hub Birmingham and Flatpack Film Festival for a screening of Spike Lee’s ‘Do The Right Thing’ as our final Yellow Wednesday before the new year, accompanied by pizza and discussion around the issues raised.
Do The Right Thing
“Salvatore “Sal” Fragione (Danny Aiello) is the Italian owner of a pizzeria in Brooklyn. A neighborhood local, Buggin’ Out (Giancarlo Esposito), becomes upset when he sees that the pizzeria’s Wall of Fame exhibits only Italian actors. Buggin’ Out believes a pizzeria in a black neighborhood should showcase black actors, but Sal disagrees. The wall becomes a symbol of racism and hate to Buggin’ Out and to other people in the neighborhood, and tensions rise.”
