SPIKE LEE BACK AT THE MIBFF!
Showing of Michael Jackson’s Journey from Motown to Off the Wall + Q&A with Spike Lee
Saturday 1st October 2016 – 7:00 p.m. – Theatre Hall Concordia University | $35
The great Spike Lee is back at the Montreal International Black Film Festival this year to pay tribute to the King of Pop. The documentary Michael Jackson’s Journey from Motown to Off the Wall will be a premiere in Canada and a Q&A session will follow: an unmissable opportunity for film-lovers and fans of Spike Lee and Michael Jackson. This “Special Evening with Spike Lee” on Saturday 1st October at 7:00 p.m. at the Concordia University Theatre Hall will give fans the chance to spend a whole evening with this film industry icon, who has helped to revolutionize contemporary black cinema. As a pioneer in independent film production and a proud ambassador of African-American culture, Spike Lee has always addressed complex issues, such as identity-based and ethnic conflicts. His work is for the most part politically oriented, provocative, and often controversial.
“We are delighted and honoured to have Spike Lee back at the Festival, which is a testament to his great support for the MIBFF – another huge achievement for Montreal. Spike Lee is a pioneer and a source of inspiration and motivation for a whole generation. His commitment to independent cinema, his strength, determination, and activism in achieving social justice really make a difference in a world that, too often, tends to silence us.” – Fabienne Colas, president and founder of the MIBFF
