Who: Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing," 1989 (Rated R, 120 minutes)

A movie that begins as an uproarious comedy evolves into a provocative, disquieting drama as director Spike Lee chronicles trivial events that bring festering racial tensions to the surface on a sweltering day in a largely black Brooklyn neighborhood.

What: Film screening as part of URBAN VISION: A Film Series on Cities
