RED BULL MUSIC ACADEMY FESTIVAL NEW YORK PRESENTS: A CONVERSATION WITH SPIKE LEE
THE DIRECTOR TALKS TO NELSON GEORGE ABOUT ICONIC MUSICAL MOMENTS IN HIS FILMS
Not only is Spike Lee a firm fixture in the movie-making world for now more than 30 years, but heâ€™s also provided some of the most memorable musical moments on film. From the Public Enemy-soundtracked opening credits for Do the Right Thing to coaxing an entire album out of Stevie Wonder for Jungle Fever to â€œCrooklyn Dodgers,â€ the career-defining scores of Terence Blanchard, and Questloveâ€™s nod to Moâ€™ Better Blues in the title of his bestselling book, Leeâ€™s work as a director is inextricably intertwined with music.
Most recently, Lee chronicled Michael Jacksonâ€™s coronation as king of pop with a documentary titled Michael Jacksonâ€™s Journey from Motown to Off the Wall. The legendary filmmaker will sit down for a lengthy conversation with Nelson George (who previously spoke to Dâ€™Angelo during RBMAâ€™s 2014 NYC festival) about how music has inspired him and the part it has played in his films.
