This essential piece of cinema captures Brooklyn at a time when it was predominantly home to communities of African-American, Latin American and Italian families, amongst others. Spike Lee stars as Mookie, a young man working at an Italian pizzeria who is struggling to earn enough to support his girlfriend and their child but lacks ambition. Frustrated by his boss Sal’s son, who makes racist remarks about the black people in the neighbourhood, and the fact a ‘wall of fame’ in the pizzeria does not include any black stars, Mookie and friends demand for them to change it. When Sal refuses, tensions begin to rise, escalating into a shocking conflict that affects the whole neighbourhood. Although it’s a quintessential 80s film, it offers a timeless exploration on gentrification, racism in American and inner-city communities.
