July 28: She’s Gotta Have It
Four years before his Oscar-nominated Do the Right Thing, Spike Lee burst onto the filmmaking scene with his frenetic and provocative debut She’s Gotta Have It. Demonstrating exactly what 80s indie cinema could be, Lee and his cinematographer Ernest R. Dickerson employed a visual flair equally inspired by Woody Allen and the French New Wave, focusing on the tale of Nola Darling, a young woman who wants to have it all and refuses to choose between her three lovers because she views monogamy as “a form of slavery.” “She’s Gotta Have It revitalized the idea of a black filmmaking that didn’t emphasize a despairing blackness as the dominant trope. Lee’s characters are black, yes, and so much more…”—Stuart Henderson, Popmatters.
Advance tickets are available at nwfilm.org: $10 general; $9 student/senior/PAM member; $7 Silver Screen Club Friend. Tickets at the door are $12 general; $11 student/senior/PAM member; $9 Silver Screen Club Friend.
