Spike Lee has been receiving some of the best reviews of his career for his latest film BLACKkKLANSMAN – and the film earned a 10-minute standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. In telling the incredible true story of Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department, Lee also examines the racism of early Hollywood films and the volatile state of current race relations in the U.S. LEARN MORE AND WATCH THE TRAILER.
“This film is Lee at his finest. In years to come, we will look at his work and BlacKkKlansman will be up there with his best.” – Jazz Tangcay, Awards Daily

ONE NIGHT ONLY: JOAN JETT, BAD REPUTATION. From the press release: Joan Jett is so much more than “I Love Rock ’n’ Roll.” It’s true, she became mega-famous from the number-one hit, and that fame intensified with the music video’s endless play on MTV. But that staple of popularity can’t properly define a musician. Jett put her hard work in long before the fame, ripping it up onstage as the backbone of the hard-rock legends The Runaways, and influencing many musicians—both her cohort of punk rockers and generations of younger bands. Bad Reputation gives you a wild ride as Jett and her close friends tell you how it really was in the burgeoning ’70s punk scene, and their interviews are laced with amazing archival footage. The theme is clear: even though people tried to define Jett and keep her stuck to one hit, she never compromised. Wednesday, September 26th. LEARN MORE & WATCH THE TRAILER.
