“I think it is very important that films make people look at what they've forgotten.” - Spike Lee
Happy Birthday to Spike Lee! The filmmaker is turning 62 today, just one month after taking home the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for “BlacKkKlansman”. This wasn’t Lee’s first Oscar — the prolific director and writer received an Academy Honorary Award in 2015 for his contributions to the film industry. Lee has made a career as a filmmaker who is unafraid of tackling difficult subjects like race and politics, creating a unique style of storytelling that has captured audiences since his feature-film debut in 1986 with “She’s Gotta Have It”.
