The event, “Why We Need Spike Lee – and All Visionary Artists”, presented by the newly established ASU Film Spark, will feature a talk by the iconoclastic director along with a special on-stage question and answer session with ASU students. The 90 minute event will cover topics ranging from gun control, race relations, as well as Lee’s distinguished body of work and the critical importance of visionary filmmaking in a culture dominated with remakes, sequels and franchised superheroes.
The event will be held at the Gammage Auditorium on the Tempe campus of Arizona State University. Emmy Award winning journalist Christine Devine and ASU Film Spark Director Adam Colis will also be part of the event.
