Toronto Outdoor Picture Show will open its summer-long series called «Cinematic Cities» with a one-night-only screening at Fort York!
Culture, politics, music, race, and gender collide in the late Reagan-era masterpiece DO THE RIGHT THING, an essential film about urban summer life. Cinematic maverick Spike Lee adopts an enthralling, colour-saturated aesthetic to capture the complicated lives of a diverse, interconnected cast of Brooklynites over the course of one day, as the sweltering heat, anger, and bigotry intensify towards an inevitable breaking point.
Do The Right Thing will follow a screening of A Tribe Called Red’s Indian City music video, which also uses the colourful cityscape and music to tell a la...rger story about urban history. Together, these two films are the perfect kick-off screening for Toronto Outdoor Picture Show’s 2018 Cinematic Cities programme, featuring films about cities and their citizens, presented in parks across Toronto this summer.
