Director Spike Lee


Straight Out of Brooklyn
Lee's first big hit, She's Gotta Have It, starred Tracy Camilla Johns and the filmmaker in a story about a girl with three suitors. Filmed in just twelve days in the area around Lee's apartment in Brooklyn, the film went on to play at the Cannes Film Festival, where it garnered huge acclaim and earned the director a distribution contract from Island Pictures.
