Lee is one of the most influential filmmakers of our time. His engaging, complex portrayals of African-American and inner-city life in such films as She’s Gotta Have It, School Daze, Do The Right Thing, Mo’ Better Blues, Jungle Fever, Crooklyn, and Malcolm X have set the tone for race relations in the ’90s. He is a director, actor, screenwriter, and the founder of Forty Acres and a Mule Filmworks. He has just completed his eighth film, Clockers, and is at work on The Jackie Robinson Saga, to be released in 1997.
